Four friends are working on new inventions in a garage and happen upon something they don’t understand that has far-reaching consequences for two of them.
While being entertaining, there are times when my head hurt from trying to get to grips with the science. If you are well-versed in the details then this will be a joy. It is more entertaining than Inception that was another, less clever head-scratcher at a tiny fraction of the cost, less showy with more substance.
This shows that an interesting script, well thought out and congruent is by far, one of the most important elements of a succesful film. The acting is subtle and comes from a place of truth.
Director, writer and lead actor, Shane Carruth plays Aaron and he creates a labyrinthine story that requires some work from the audience to decipher various clues that rewards the committed viewer. Co-starring David Sullivan who plays Abe, Aaron’s partner in time and Casey Gooden as Robert and Anand Upadhyaya as Phillip as the other two entrepreneurs.
Not quite as enjoyable as Coherence but sharing the same DNA, this film is a welcome addition to the time-travel canon. It reminds me of Pi, in the sense that you know you are watching something of merit but many times feel lost as far as narrative goes.
This film is very well made on a very shoestring budget ($7000) and the scant running time of 77 minutes means that your disorientation will only last for a short period of time .
Full of technical jargon that may confuse and confound its viewers, but ultimately rewards.
A film for the scientists.
