Clean Slate (Blu-Ray)
Clean Slate stars Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey as Maurice Pogue, a private detective recovering from amnesia. Pogue suffers a head injury that affects his short-term memory (which disappears every time he falls asleep), an affliction that will jeopardize his professional life as well as a major case against mobster Cornell (Michael Gambon, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), in which he’s a witness. Add to the mix a murder plot, double-crosses and a possible femme fatale (Valeria Golino, Rain Man) and you have the ingredients for a first-rate comic thriller. Clean Slate, directed by Mick Jackson (L.A. Story) from a screenplay by Robert King, features supporting performances by James Earl Jones (Star Wars), Kevin Pollak (L.A. Story), Michael Murphy (Phase IV), Jayne Brook (Kindergarten Cop) and Olivia d’Abo (Wayne’s World 2).
