Culture travels slowly to our shores, so only after watching Unknown White Male last night did I discover that the rest of the world has been discussing it for over a year. For those not in the know, it’s a documentary about a man who suffers an extreme case of retrograde amnesia. Effectively, his entire life prior to the memory loss is erased, forcing him to rediscover everything that he once knew.
I enjoyed it – but as the film progressed, I sensed more and more that something wasn’t quite right. Apparently I’m not alone in my suspicions. So on the basis that one day, truth will out, I’m going with the “it’s fake” crowd. How about you?
