A Quality Parallel Universe Experience
28 February 2013 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969) offered a similar but more mystery thriller suspense bent to Random Quest and its more extended psychological experiential focus. In some ways Random Quest takes the "if what" genre, like It's A Wonderful Life (1946) but instead of an Angel there is a black hole, alternative universe explanation. What brings this movie to life is a brilliant architecture display and ethereal musical score, along with some fascinating hypothetical alternative contemporary historical propositions that are on display in this movie.

The continuity, editing, shortness of the movie created some disjointed and abrupt character changes in the movie, especially during the earlier sequences. The very opening sequence seems a little out of the blue and confusing. Nevertheless, this parallel universe had more depth than say The Thirteenth Floor (1999) which again focused more an the thriller aspect than the qualitative relational theme of Random Quest.
