Audience Reviews for Amnesia: The James Brighton Enigma
Even though it's clearly filmed on a low budget and the acting is a bit iffy, the story behind Amnesia remains gripping and engrossing stuff. I find it fascinating that someone who has lost the memory of themselves and any people they might know can still be aware of their sexuality, and I'm sure this is more proof (not that I think proof was ever needed) that one does not and cannot *choose* their sexuality. The reasons behind James' amnesia are both moving and believable and the film's open-ended 'conclusion' is perfectly pitched. A powerful film.
Solid mystery that is not predictable. For the most part the performances are good and it?s believably presented. Fine score, interesting plot turns. It held my interest throughout.
Brought to a hospital after finding himself naked ans wounded in a deserted lot. He doesn't know his name or who he is. Slowly he is able to piece some things together, or can he? He does say a name and that he is gay. A young woman re-opens the case to search for truths. Is the truth too hard to remember in detail or was it all a hoax to cover for some thing even more sinister. Yes, I would recommend this film.
