THE MAN FROM THE FUTURE
released OUT NOW! 2011 | 12 | dVd
“What year is this?!” Yep, we’re in that territory, as a scientist stumbles upon time travel and goes back to the night his life went wrong.
This Brazilian film plays out rather like the ace Timecrimes, but is less assured. After a mostly compulsive first half the characters’ unbelievable and unsympathetic behaviour rocks the boat, and the plot complications nearly sink it. But it’s not bad for a nowherenear-Hollywood sci-fi effort.
Extras None. Russell Lewin
Inside the ping pong ball was amazing.
