Memorize: Sci-Fi Short

A decent Swedish concept film by aspiring directors Jimmy Eriksson and Erik Ramberg.  The film takes place in 2027, where everyone is implanted with a chip which can record everything an individual sees. This new technology allows the stylish paramilitary police unit known as the Special Surveillance Unit (SSU) to effectively become judge, jury and executioner a la Judge Dredd.

Though it is a short film, and as such has a limited scope, I would liked to have seen a deeper exploration of the technology as opposed to the non-stop action scenes.  Also the lack of dialogue made it feel a little off.  On the other hand, I thought it did a wonderful job of conveying a futuristic world through it's use of CGI.  I also liked the Kage Bunshin holograms ;)
