SYN­CHRONIC­ITY

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

In this low- bud­get, near- fu­ture noir, a sci­en­tist time- trav­els back a few days by cre­at­ing a worm­hole. Though smart and slick, it’s overly fa­mil­iar on two fronts.

The aes­thetic is pure Blade Run­ner, all Van­ge­lis synths and light stream­ing through Vene­tian blinds. The cir­cu­lar nar­ra­tive, mean­while, re­calls the likes of Primer, Time­crimes and Tri­an­gle. You’ll need to draw a flow­chart to chart the hero’s path, but as it all boils down to meet­ing a girl, it barely seems worth the ef­fort.
