Via the Movie Blog, I watched the engaging trailer for Unknown White Male. It’s a documentary about Doug Bruce, who apparently forgot everything he knew while riding the subway home one day. Here’ s a blurb from a review:
The victim of a rare form of retrograde amnesia that had entirely wiped his episodic (read: personal) memory clean but left his procedural (read: skill-based) memory intact, Bruce was the owner of a blank mental slate, and friend Rupert Murray’s alternately poignant, terrifying, and profound documentary Unknown White Male follows Doug as he attempts to reconstruct a life from the wreckage wrought by his mysterious ailment.
The film’s official website has some more info. There’s no word on a theatrical release yet.
