Is there a movie about a guy/girl who's a time traveler but doesn't know their a time-traveler but everybody else either knows/suspects it, but the character is in perpetual denial of the incidents of time-travel?

So, when you say this person is a time traveler, does that mean that he/she travels back and forth through time, or was this a one time deal that has left him/her with amnesia?

I don't remember a single instance of it. The whole fish-out-of-water thing seems to be the deal when it comes to time traveling movies. This sounds like a really interesting take. I'd watch the shit out of it.

I agree with Rocco, it does sound like a VERY interesting twist.
The feel I get is for something similar to "Memento".
I would put Alex Garland on the writing.
Wong Kar-wai to direct.
Sean Harris as lead. Maybe even a solo lead. Oooooooooh, trippy.
And it would HAVE TO be noir.
Have to be.
"Memento" was.
Way understated ... something that would give your bone marrow goose bumps.
Carter Burwell for the score.
Jan de Bont cinematography.
Editing - Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Casting - Ellen Chenoweth.

And, of course, Executive Producers Neil and Rocco.

That's thinking HOLLYWOOD!
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

as Executive Producers, Rocco and I will have as a strategic goal to donate
a minimum of 60% of profits accruing from any aspect of the project
to a worthy charity. This will insure that we will lose our shirts, but hey,
we's got mo' shirts but you can't BUY street cred.

whoa whoa whoa this was my idea. Although it wouldn't be Hollywood successful if it wasn't stolen out from under me.....I hope I get a nice van to sleep in.

I don't know I just thought of it? I suppose that's the arch of the film in a sense? I suppose it would happen more than once so that the character would have to figure out how to accept being a time traveler over the course of the movie and how to live his/her life. It kinda sounds terrible.

Pardon me, circuitsnake.
You are correct, pardon me for hijacking your thread.
No harm intended.
Friends?
Neil.

In Time is not a time-travel movie. Are you think of About Time, perhaps?
