The extraordinary subject and the filmmaker's near total access make for a singular documentary. Rupert Murray turned his camera on close friend Douglas Bruce, a well-heeled British stockbroker turned photographer who one night left his Manhattan loft and resurfaced 11 hours later in Coney Island having lost his memory. He's suffering from a rare form of retrograde amnesia, and though his intellect remains intact, he has to relearn skills and reenter long-standing relationships with family and friends: absolutely everything he encounters is new. It's as though he's stepped into a parallel universe, not so much rebuilding his life but becoming a different person in the same skin—and our empathy and fascination grow as he finds his way. 88 min.
