Overview

Scott McGehee and David Siegel, 1993, 96 min., 35mm

In this witty and cerebral murder mystery, Vincent Tower plots to kill his long-lost but nearly identical half-brother Clay and pass the death off as his own. Clay survives Vincent's car bomb, but suffers severe amnesia. With the help of a plastic surgeon named Renee Descartes, Clay sets out to reconstruct his identity — but as Vincent, the prime suspect in their father's murder. As Clay's memory begins to return, he must decide which life he will embody.
