Apple TV Plus’ new thriller is a stylish take on a well-worn concept

The idea of ​​amnesia has long been a compelling storyline for the popular culture.

This ranges from spinning wild tales in soap operas through to all-time classic films like Memento, The Bourne Identity or Mulholland Drive. Then there’s the idea of ​​on-purpose memory loss, as seen in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, or Men In Black’s memory-zapper. Even The Hangover trilogy could arguably be classed as characters dealing with a series of abrupt blackouts (albeit self-inflicted by drinking their own body weight in booze).
