Sometime between 8pm on July 1st and 7am on July 2nd, 2002, Doug Bruce lost himself. That morning, riding alone on a New York subway headed towards Coney Island, he could not remember his name. Where he worked. Who his friends were. How much money he had in his bank account. He was without his identity.

UNKNOWN WHITE MALE is the true story of how Bruce, a successful former stockbroker, struggles to learn who he was and who he will become. The documentary, produced by Bruce's longtime friend, Rupert Murray, chronicles this profound journey.

Very different movie, but very interesting and scary to think this could happen to any one. He was great to allow his friend to make this. If this interests you watch it you wont be disappointed.

Brilliant documentary and only an hour and a half long. Very original and well put together. If you like documentaries, you'll like this.

Really interesting. I did not expect a documentary, but found myself captivated. Itwould be interesting to see how he gets along in the next two years.

I wasn't really that interested in this doco/movie after about the first 5 minutes; so I can't really give you much of a helpful review.

An intriguing premise for a doco. Fate has served the guy with total amnesia a real curve ball. Very interesting film, just a little indulgent in parts. Quite compelling.

or friend. Well acted.
