Watch Permanent Record - Alternative Versions.
Long before there was The Matrix, before there was a Bill and Ted, Keanu
Reeves starred in Permanent Record, a movie that inexplicably has gone
unnoticed. Permanent Record is a wonderful, moving, touching film about how
one deals with those tragedies in life that have no explanation, and no
matter how much we ask Why?, we know there will never be an answer to that
If you have never seen this film, my recommendation would be that the first
time you view it, you watch it cold without knowing anything about what is
to take place. That would mean not reading this review or any of the others
posted here. After you have watched the film you will understand. The film
begins as if you are watching any other film about teenagers, high school
and their day to day lives. The two main characters are Chris (Keanu
Reeves) and David (brilliantly portrayed by Alan Boyce), who are good
friends. They play in a band together for which David is writing the music.
David is a straight A student whom seems to have everything going for him.
He is popular, he has been accepted into a major music college, he has a
very loving, caring, wonderful set of parents (played by Barry Corbin and
Kathy Baker), a younger brother who looks up to and admires him and a
beautiful girl friend. Yet, we begin to see little things that hint there
is something wrong in David's life. The first time you watch Permanent
Record, like his family and friends, you may not even notice that things are
not as perfect for David as they seem. We see the signs, but we ignore them
or overlook them.
It is not long until one fateful night a tragedy occurs that will forever
alter the way Chris along with his friends and classmates view their lives.
We are there when it happens, along with Chris, yet like Chris, we don't
actually see the event occur. At first, as Chris does also, we are sure it
must have been an accident. We soon find out it was not. Instead David's
family and friends are only left with questions How could this happen when
David seemed to have everything going for him? Why did it happen? Couldn't
they have seen it coming? Shouldn't they have been able to stop it from
happening? They are questions for which there will never be any answers,
not for us not for them. They must come to terms with what happens, without
ever understanding. In the end that is what Permanent Record is about.
There are so many things that happen in life which will be beyond our
understanding or reasoning. We may look back angrily when we think about
it, as Chris and his classmates surely will, as they learn their own lives
are changed forever.
Keanu Reeves gives an emotional depth to his character that I have never
seen him bring to any film since Permanent Record. He has all the
characteristics of a typical High Scool boy down, yet we are able to see the
pain he is going through, and we feel it as much as he does. Alan Boyce as
David, plays him with such perfection, that even when he is no longer on the
screen, that we miss him along with Chris, his parents and his classmates.
The last five minutes of this film are five of the most poignant minutes I
have experienced in any film. It is a scene that touches at the very heart
of this film. Though we may never understand many of the tragedies that
occur in life, we remember those we have lost and the things they brought to
us while they were here. Then, in the end, we must move on. Sometimes
there just are no answers.
