The Memory Thief

Rated NR 94 minutes 2008

Lukas is an aimless, haunted young man working as a tollbooth clerk when a chance encounter with a Holocaust survivor suddenly ignites an obsession with the survivors and their horrific recollections of evil. At first, Lukas's newfound interest seems harmless enough--he works at a foundation taping the video testimony of Holocaust victims, and befriends a young Jewish woman named Mira, whose father is also a Holocaust survivor. Adler turns in a fantastic performance as a man determined not to relive his past, and Webber is alternately fascinating and frightening as he embarks on a bizarre quest to create a new persona for himself based on the survivors' memories and experiences. Like Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, Lukas is consumed by the darkness he claims to reject, and his chilling descent into the abyss echoes the shocking reality of the Holocaust itself.
