Confounding, but strangely beautiful
24 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure I could even begin to describe this film's plot, save that it has something to do with street-merchant psychics and the maybe-maybe-not deaths of two policemen. It bounces back and forth through time — not to mention alternate times — so much that for the first little while, you're sure to be wondering what you've gotten yourself into by watching it.

But about halfway through, suddenly it all starts to make some sort of elegantly distant sense, and you find yourself getting wrapped up in the story of someone who might or might not have killed someone and who might or might not be working at a place where he divines the owners of bits of stuff for the benefit of unknown powers that be.

I know I'm not making a lot of sense. Neither does FOUND IN TIME. It has a secondary character who might be God or might be someone else. We're not sure, and the screenwriter doesn't say for certain one way or another. But his job appears to be to send people around in time to do... something... somehow...

It's just strange and odd and yet very compelling. A friend of mine described it as "12 Monkeys without a budget" — and yet it's not because it's far more complex. You have to keep your wits about you watching a movie like this.

The reason for eight stars and not 10? It has its shortcomings — the masks the psychologists wear look, at the outset, a little... okay, a lot silly. I understand the concept behind them, but they don't really work all that well. And there are moments when the storyline becomes a little too self-reflectively precious... and yet I'm not sure where you could trim that away without ruining the very distinct pleasure this film offers. And while most of the performances are distinctly compelling, a few — specifically, the two policemen and the girlfriend — are just a tad over the top, thus ruining the "reality" the film seeks to portray.

But I can forgive those, actually: it's a low-budget indie film, after all. Once you look past those are how wondrously brilliant the conceit and its execution are, there are joys to be found.

Just watch out for the nails...
