    Reminiscence (HBO Max)

    Nick Bannister, a private investigator of the mind, navigates the alluring world of the past when his life is changed by new client Mae. A simple case becomes an obsession after she disappears and he fights to learn the truth about her.

    Great plot. But, the style is noir. I hate that style. If one likes that style, this would be an outstanding movie. The plot itself challenges the mind but the style numbs it, IMO. Good acting all around, and the minus is the canned dialogue that plagues noir movies.

    There you have it.

    I had trouble with the basis of this movie but it looked good.
