The Final Cut
(2004) Gene says I only like Robin Williams when he's not being over the top. Guess that's why I like him in this one.

The story is about William's character and his efforts to create (cut/edit) for his clients an oh-so-pleasant vignette from their deceased loved one's memory chip and his angst when he discovers why he can't be a "cutter" anymore.

At first I was disappointed by the abrupt ending. But abrupt endings are about making you think. And there's plenty here to go back and think about. There is an important message in the movie but it's too subtle and lots of people won't even recognize it. Slippery slope, folks. Slippery slope.
