Looking for a movie probably from the 90's, maybe 00's; almost certainly American, where the protagonist (?) has a job of compiling something like "best-of reels" of dead people's memories as part of a funeral service.

I remember a beautiful computer interface within a wood (-panel) desk with an inset keyboard, and I think something like track-balls/jog wheels.

The story is about some discovery the protagonist makes in one of his clients' videos. It seems that everybody has a recording device à la "The entire history of you" or "Strange days", and this is used to compile a home-movie style video to remember the deceased by.

The protagonist is probably a white male in his 40s.

The Final Cut (2004)

The story is set in a world where implanted microchips can record all moments of an individual's life. The chips are removed upon death so the images can be edited into something of a highlight reel for loved ones who want to remember the deceased. Caviezel portrays the leader of the organization that opposes this technology's development.
