"In trying to solve a series of unsolved murders, Sal Frieland (Owen) stumbles onto a young woman (Seyfried) who appears to have subverted the system and disappeared. She has no identity, no history and no record. Sal realizes it may not be the end of crime but the beginning. Known only as The Girl, Sal must find her before he becomes the next victim."
Anon hits the UK this May, and then drops on Netflix in the US later this year.

Niccol, Owen and Seyfried is a pretty sweet line up. It looks to be more In Time-style Niccol than Gattaca, but at least it should be entertaining. Sorta reminds me of Watch_Dog.

Full trailer:

3 of the 4 reviews RT has posted are negative. Bummer.

^^ Ugh... was hoping to watch this one this weekend but I'll wait for more reviews. It doesn't seem like anything native (feature film) on Netflix is worth a damn these days.

I'll probably watch it later today. From the writer/director of Gattaca.

They come and go in spurts. Mostly HBO Friday Night level movies with the occasional quality flick mixed in.

Netflix bought this at TIFF last fall.

I've been really disappointed with the last few I watched - particularly Mute. Such high production values for an absolute ZERO plot... I kept holding on thinking there must be a twist at the end.

"Unproduced passion project" is generally a good sign that it won't be a great flick these days.

I'll definitely give it a shot. Good Kill was on my Top-10 of that year.

Just finished it and thought it was pretty awesome. Like the cousin of Gattaca. Same sort of production design and whatnot. The cars, too.

Thumbs up from me.

Thanks. Finally someone watched it and gave an opinion.

I thought it was interesting. Very deliberately paced. Amanda looked good. I was never a big Clive fan. He did fine. A few plot holes but gotta keep things moving.

ANOTHER winner from NF.
This weekend I watched 3 NF Sci-fis: Anon, Mute, Titan.
All hit the mark and were conversation starters.

Ms. Seyfried showed me something.
The dark hair really camouflaged her well.
Clive was his normal Clive self (good).

Netflix is now the-place-to-be for great Sci-fi...no one comes close.

Wait, you thought Mute and Titan were good movies? I guess to each their own but I was really disappointed in both --- especially, IMO, neither went anywhere with the plot.

Yep, sure did.

Hmmm, I didn't find that to be the case at all, but OK, to each their own.

I hated Mute and didn't care for Titan. Anon is one of my favorite films of the year so far, though.

I'm about 40 mins in so far... Nobody blinks in the future; they also hold their gun in a very common position similar to a video game. Not liking it so far but between Seyfried and the ridiculous gratuitous nudity, I'll likely finish it.

Was kind of on the fence about watching this, but I'm sold. I'll check it out.

Eh, I feel lied to. Lots of people talking about "gratuitous nudity" on various sites, but all things considered there was very little nudity in this film. One scene with some lesbian chicks, once scene with a hooker, and one scene with Seyfried (though they showed it like twice).

The movie itself wasn't bad though. I enjoyed it, even though it dragged in a few places. The ending was a bit predictable.

Ms. Seyfried really needs a lift job...very unattractive chest for someone her age.

If you just want nudity, there's this thing called porn --- it's online.
