Paul Verhoeven / US, 1990 / 113 min.
Construction worker Doug Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has new memories implanted in his brain by Rekall, a company specialising in extraordinary space travels in Paul Verhoeven’s sardonic science fiction spectacle. Verhoeven’s conundrum of a film is now screened in the new 4K Ultra HD restoration to mark the film’s thirtieth anniversary.
Doug Quaid tries to spice up his boring life by booking an exciting, virtual trip to Mars as a special agent with a company called Rekall Incorporated, but he gets more than he bargained for. He ends up in the middle of a war between the ruthless dictator Richter and a group of rebels, although nobody really knows what is real and what is implanted experience.
