Murder in My Mind movie review

Callain Pearson (Nicollette Sheridan) is a new agent who is trying to make an impression in the Old Boys network. Her boyfriend (Peter Coyote) is experimenting on helping disabled minds recover. When a woman is left in a coma after an attack, Callain uses the untried technology to gain the memories of the victim and hopefully capture the killer.

A fairly basic movie with minimal special effects, it concerns itself with the combined stress of gaining the respect of one's co-workers and seniors and the conflict of having someone else's memories and habits in one's own mind. Some interesting ideas, but not hard-core science fiction.
