Robin Williams portrays Hakman, a 'cutter' whose job is to edit together the life moments of people. Through a biological implantation device, installed in the brain before a child is even born, everything is recorded until their deaths. Then, all this life footage is taken to a cutter where it's edited into an hour and a half 'Rememory' for that person's family. Complications arise when he discovers that he has an implanted device, something that a Cutter absolutely cannot have. Because his parents died when he was young they never had a chance to tell him about it (people are usually told when they are 21) Yet this enables him to set to rest a childhood memory he has, a memory which has literally shaped his life to what it is.As this is happening, there is a political organization which opposes 'Rememories' that wants footage from the job Hakman is now working on. It belongs to one of the businessmen of that company and it could cause a scandal because he was sexually abusing his daughter. Hakman won't give them the footage, which is a moot point when it's all destroyed after a girlfriend (Mira Sorvino) wrecks his editing console. So now the only way they can get it is through Hakman's stored footage-but in order to access his Rememories they'll have to kill him.THE FINAL CUT is an intriguing, thought-provoking sci-fi movie that's entirely too plausible.
