I have mentioned this movie on Twitter, but I must repeat myself: THIS FILM IS FUCKING NUTS!!

—21% on Rotten Tomatoes!

—Ray Liotta acting his heart out!

—Linda Fiorentino with nothing to do!

The plot summary (taken from RT):

”This cross between a psychological thriller and an old fashioned murder mystery tells the story of a police pathologist who takes extreme measures to prove himself innocent of his wife's murder and to solve the puzzling massacre in a Seattle drug store. Dr. David Krane was formally charged with his wife murder, but tainted evidence got him an acquittal; it did not clear his name and as a result he lost his two daughters. His search for her killer begins when he is called to the drugstore scene where he finds a curled up matchbook, the exact same kind that was found near his wife. Soon afterward he learns of noted neurologist Dr. Martha Briggs experimentation with a new form of memory retrieval. She has discovered that memory resides in brain fluid and that if the fluid from one brain is mixed with a special formula and injected into the brain of another, that person will experience the memories of the other when a strong stimulus is administered. At least that is the theory. So far she has only worked with lab rats. But for the fact that the majority of the injected rodents die of heart failure, her experiments have been successful. Learning more about Briggs' work, Krane becomes determined to test it on himself using the stored brain fluid of his late wife.”

I will stop there because I don’t want to spoil it and it just gets crazier.

I have tickets to both of your Seattle shows and I will be heartbroken if you do not pick this film! It is the true definition of BONKERS. 

Here is the YouTube link to the trailer. I have no idea why they list it with Christopher McDonald as the actor—he has a rather small role. The trailer does an EXCELLENT job of conveying the tone of the movie.

I’m giving this a bump because this would be an excellent choice for the Seattle stop on the tour (followed by Disclosure and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle)!

Good question, I don’t know. That’s why I also suggested Disclosure and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. But personally, I think Unforgettable (1996) is the most bananas of the three.

Can't believe that out of all the crazy shit Ray Liotta has been in, In the Name of the King is the only movie of his they've done. Between this, Heartbreakers, No Escape, and Turbulence I feel like they have alot of ground to cover in his illustrious career.
