Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bob Tzudiker in Total Recall (1990)

In Total Recall (1990), set in the year 2084, Douglas Quaid has recurrent dreams about Mars, where, as far as he knows, he has never been. At a holiday agency that implants artificial memories of visits to exotic places, Quaid signs up for a vacation as a secret agent to the Red Planet. It turns out, however, that he actually has been a secret agent on Mars. Another personality surfaces during implantation, and, for most of the movie, we cannot tell if the events we see are “reality” or programmed memories. A video of someone identical to Quaid tells him, “you are not you, you are me.”
