Masterful and visionary
3 July 2013 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I have seen and rated over 500 films and I have never seen anything like Reconvergence. I rated only five of those films 10 stars, and Reconvergence is one of those five. It is not only unique, it is uniquely brilliant. A description of the film sounds fairly prosaic. It mostly consists of four monologues presented by four people who are not only different from one another, but different from most people you'll ever meet. They present a range of provocative views on many issues--both timely and timeless. They cover evolution of humanity, history, memory, consciousness, time, mortality, nature, reality, virtuality, surreality, individual meaning and purpose in life--and more.

The cinematography is stunning and complements the overall flow of the film. The music is hypnotic and draws the viewer into the mind-bending verbal and visual tapestry. The stars' monologues are carefully intertwined by skillful editing; not so much to create a coherent, linear narrative, but to provide an impressionistic canvas that starts in the distant past and stretches into an uncertain future. Reconvergence is an absolute must see. Director Tyndall and team have created a visionary epic that will make its mark on the thoughtful viewer; it will change you for the duration (as one of the film's stars, Waite Rawls, might say) of both history and memory.
