A forgotten classic in the low-budget S.F. genre
27 January 2000 | by (San Francisco, California, USA) – See all my reviews

"As Time Goes By" is an interesting, memorable film that I think any fan of Science Fiction would enjoy. I saw it in the late '80s at the Mill Valley Film Festival and I made a point to remember the name, because I suspected that this film might not get the publicity it deserved, and would become hard to find.

Aside from the S.F. elements, I would classify this as a mystery/drama with comedic touches. It's a low budget film and the director knows it, using this to keep the tone light and also to focus the audience on the characters and their story.

I especially like the way the filmmaker plays with the time travel element, showing me a trick or two I have never seen before. The alien is weird, wise and funny and even though I have read my fair share of S.F. I haven't encountered another one like him. Sure, the film isn't perfect, but it was easy to ignore the flaws because I like the spirit and intelligence of the people who made it.

I hope this gets released on DVD so I can buy it. "As Time Goes By" stands on my list as one of the top ten films of 1988. That's right, I'm not kidding! Top ten.
