Unknown (2006)

A puzzle piece ala Memento, Unknown draws on the idea that people are essentially good or evil. The premise of the film is intriguing as it gives each one a clean conscience, but in an environment of fear.

Five bloodied men awake in a chemical fog in a warehouse with acute amnesia. It becomes quickly apparent that some of them kidnapped the others, but none can recall who was who. They attempt to piece events together as time runs out.

The acting in the film was excellent, giving the equally terrific script fullness in each graceful turn. The editing was subtle and engaging with its brief mental images as the men begin to recall their pasts.
