When Malcolm wakes up, he has no idea where — or even who — he is. A woman who tells him that she is his wife Helen reassures and reminds himself of his identity and that he’s recovering for an accident. But as others arrive, like Ian and a masked group that wants something that Malcolm has been hiding, nothing makes sense.
The first full-length movie by Tomas Street, Fugue has some moments of beauty mixed with darkness. Jack Foley, who was also in Lifechanger, is great in the lead role, suggesting a toughness beneath the surface of a man whose memory has left him. Laura Tremblay, who plays his — well, maybe — wife is also good in this.
It’s an intriguing idea for a movie that’s well-executed. What else do you want, you know?
