None Of Us Are As Unique As We Think. Identicals
is a highly unconventional romantic thriller: an obsessive love story stripped down and re-arranged into the looping logic of a nightmare.
From British writer-director Simon Pummell
seeks to make real a premise that in a parallel universe, there is a version of yourself that is enjoying a better life than you.
Built within the conventions of the sci-fi genre, Identicals
is, or rather attempts to be, a slow burning, thoughtful and introspective film, which chooses to show rather than tell, and often leaves the viewer to draw their own conclusions based on the loose evidence presented to them.
I’ll start with what was good about Identicals
. A haunting and enduring score, which complemented what were overall well thought-out visuals, was certainly one of the highlights of it.
