Anon | Netflix | Another decent futuristic thriller

A dark, futuristic Sci-fi thriller Anon sticks to age old streamlined story telling.  Anon hinges on the idea that anonymity is a thing of the past and that its impossible for anybody to get away with a crime as both the perpetrator and the victim both have every single second of their life available and recorded for the officers of the law. What you see is a digital footprint in itself. Everything is pretty much an open and shut case before the investigation even sets off ! Then, however, things go for a toss when you no longer can believe what you see. Yes, Anon pretty much deals with the hacking of the human mind.

Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is a detective who investigates murders and is pretty good at it. Things change when he is called into a crime scene where the last few moments that a victim had seen through her eyes was what the perpetrator saw through his/her eyes. A series of such murders and a chance encounter with a anon, led the investigators to believe that a lady (Amanda Seyfried) was the common denominator in all the crimes. Amanda’s character is a human mind hacker who can erase the memories and replace them with fresh memories. The rest of the story is a well paced thriller which sticks to the usual dark setting corresponding to every Netflix Futuristic Movie/Series.

I would suggest this as a one time watch to anyone interested in thrillers. Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried are good in their roles, as expected and background music is pretty engaging throughout.
