Dick story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale". Directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Ronald Shusett, Dan O'Bannon, Jon Povill, and Gary Goldman, it won a Special Achievement Academy Award for its visual effects. The soundtrack composed by Jerry Goldsmith won the BMI Film Music Award.
The plot concerns an apparently unsophisticated construction worker, Doug Quaid (Schwarzenegger), who is either a victim of a failed memory implant procedure or a freedom fighter from Mars relocated to Earth. He attempts to restore order and reverse the corrupt influence of commercial powers, all while faced with the possibility that none of these events are real and pursuing them could damage his brain.
In 2084, Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a construction worker on Earth, married to his wife Lori (Sharon Stone). Fantasizing of traveling to Mars, he visits "Rekall", a company that can implant memories of a virtual vacation. Quaid opts for a trip to Mars, including the option of being a secret agent and discovering alien technology as part of his virtual experience. When Quaid is sedated and put into the implant machine, the technicians discover he has already undergone a previous memory wipe. Quaid wakes up, frenzied and disoriented, claiming the Rekall technicians have blown his cover. He attacks them in an attempt to escape, but they manage to subdue and sedate him again, wiping the memory of his visit to Rekall and sending him home.
Quaid wakes up in a taxi nearing his residence, unaware of how he got there. On his way home, he is attacked by his former coworkers who tell him he should not have gone to Rekall and during the struggle, he kills his would-be assailants. As he gets home and attempts to explain what's happened to his wife, Lori, she turns on him and tries to kill him, but he manages to ensnare her. She admits she is not his wife, and that his cover is truly blown. Quaid races out of the apartment as men, led by Richter (Michael Ironside), attempt to catch him. While in hiding, Quaid is contacted by a stranger who claimed they were "buddies back at the Agency." He gives Quaid a briefcase and promptly disappears, explaining that Quaid himself had given him instructions to do so. The briefcase contains false identity papers, money, and a device designed to remove the tracker implanted in Quaid's head, which Richter is following. The briefcase also contains a video from Quaid himself, but here, he calls himself Hauser, explaining that he used to work for Mars administrator Vilos Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) hunting rebels, but turned on Cohaagen after a crisis of conscience. Hauser believes Cohaagen must be responsible for Quaid's implantation. Quaid escapes as Richter closes on the discarded tracking device.
