Interesting idea but undeveloped

The atmosphere is there in the big empty mansion like it was haunted, perfect as setting for a horror/mystery film. As the film progresses, the story becomes confusing and more questions raised and no answers in the end makes the whole thing confusing and forgettable. Rating 6.5/10 is stretching a little far. Why'd Anna want to send John to jail? What'd she get out of this? It's very ungrateful seeing John has no other intention than trying to cure her, while making a living in the process. How'd she manage to wake up before John, changed her memory and able to to manipulate him, when he's supposed to be an expert in this? And why'd his own memory of his wife dying just happen to pop up unnecessarily and it so happened during all those crucial moments?

If she was locked inside her own room and supposed to have no outside interaction, why'd she be seen outside by John and if that wasn't her, who was it? It happened more than once so it couldn't just be explained as John's mere imagination. And why and what'd she be doing outside? She's been locked inside and apparently no contact with anybody or did anybody want anything to do with her, deeming her as a psycho. At the end when John was chasing Anna into the forest, who was that man standing at the top of the hill? Who locked John in the surveillance room? Whose blood was on Anna's hand when she hugged him? What happened to whoever that person was? Did she stab her own mother? Why? Where was Anna in the end when John was in jail? What happened to her? Still locked in her room, for eternity? Nothing much is explained like the writer himself has no answers to them either and all these confusing elements are just jumbled and thrown into the story to make it feel more mysterious when in fact it just comes across as confusing to the point of annoying.

Nothing makes sense and I don't bother whatever happens to the plot or characters anymore. Mark Strong is the reason why I'd stay with this film till the end. The girl just comes across as spoilt and pain in the a**, unbelievable as a manipulative yet innocent girl who somehow manages to outsmart an older and experienced adult and sent him to jail for no reason at all.

As a TV movie, it's ok to see just once for free. I wouldn't pay to see this mediocre film.

You are my safe place

"Anna" or "Mindscape" is a story about John Washington (Mark Strong), a memory detective. John, like some others, have the ability to access people's memories with the use of a device and some ESP powers. Recently John has had some problems as his own memories about his dead wife have been interfering with his work.

John has been given the job of Anna (Taissa Farmiga) the daughter of a very wealthy family. She is 16 and is on a hunger strike. She is extremely intelligent i.e. "off the charts" and gifted. Her step-father (Richard Dillane) believes she is "haunting." With a step-dad and a teen daughter, our minds always go there, but in this film we are dealing with a far more complex issue.

John enters Anna's memories, which makes things more complex as her memories don't seem to fit the facts...or do they? The film is a mystery as we, like John, attempt to figure out if Anna is the victim or perpetrator.

It is a good mystery. Anna draws us in with her intellect. The color red plays a role as the color of blood, roses, dark room, and John's beach house.

May be too slow for some people.

Parental Guide: 1-2 F-bombs. Brief photo nudity. Adult themes.

'Twist' at the end disappointing

First of all the positives. There are so many truly dreadful video projects being called films coming through these days that is always a relief, personally, to get past the first few minutes and realise it is well made movie. And this one really is. It deserves a 5 just for that. The premise here though is becoming over used, that film quality memories can be generated by putting a few sensors on someone's forehead and that others can participate in those memories. Silly really as a plot device, but the cast and script mostly gets past that. Brian Cox' American accent is for me still quite funny, but everything goes well until it dawns you're being set up for a 'twist'. As it unveils you have to try too hard to ignore all the plot devices and they just become silly in the end which left me feeling disappointed. Why can't script writers think up and execute genuinely unforeseeable or just credible endings to these types of films instead of leaving you thinking of the dozen or so gaping holes in the plot or what sane people wouldn't have done. Shame, all great up to the end.
