Pinhole Movie Reviews

Shane Carruth of Upstream Color fame makes a 77 minute film about 2 engineers who accidentally build a time machine only to realize that maybe they aren’t smart enough to use it wisely. The great thing about this movie is how effectively it conveys the complexity of time travel. Everything the characters do feels like something you might do if you had a time machine, and all of the complications also feel like complications you might actually run into. The only complaint I have is that the mystery of how a certain character comes to know about the time machine is never explained or even hinted at. I guess that was probably the intent of Mr. Carruth, but I just found it frustrating. Worth watching.

Yes, an enjoyable film even if I had no idea what the crap was going on!
