Movie ID Filter: Colored Bodies?
June 4, 2011 8:06 PM   Subscribe

Asking for a friend: vaguely remembered movie filter. Something about bodies and colors...

- Futuristic setting, although friend (in her early 20s) thinks that the technology in the film looked "really old"
- Bodies were tagged with colors and depending on their color something happened to them
- Very serious female doctor or nurse
- Strong medical/anatomical themes/visuals
- Perhaps a kid (or someone/something) causes a mix up with the body labels and something bad happens

A reach, but could it be Logan's Run?

The made-for-TV version of Brave New World?

Best answer: In Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, a 1983 public television adaptation of a John Varley story, a child on a field trip mischievously switches a routing tag for someone's body and sends them off for sexual reassignment. The switch occurs at 22:04 to 22:07 in this video.

The film was rightly later torn to shreds on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Response by poster: Amazing, adipocere, we would have never gotten it in a million years!

Watching now, it is amazingly bad.

Just chiming in to say that I love the MST3k-ization of Overdrawn At The Memory Bank.
