An unmistakably shoestring digital video feature with the heart of a lesser "Twilight Zone" episode, "Final" is an uneven, low-impact brain teaser about a mental patient (Denis Leary) who is convinced he was cryogenically frozen in 1999 and is now a prisoner in the distant future, scheduled to die in a government experiment.

It's an enticing psychological talker, most of which takes place in Leary's sterile, near-empty ward as he and his outwardly compassionate doctor (Hope Davis) dodge and parry through a battle of wills over his vivid but incomplete delusions.
