Best movie I have seen in a long time
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In some senses Time Lapse is a movie about time travel and all the paradoxes that would come in tow, but really that is just the stage that is used for a movie that explores many aspects of human nature. Time Lapse gives its characters a tool that can fulfill all their desires, and then shows the addiction, greed, manipulation, and general moral decay that follows.

Bradley King and BP Cooper did a stellar job with the writing. They waste no time in setting up the plot, immediately put you on the edge of your seat, and keep you there until the credits roll. All the actors turned in excellent performances despite the challenge of their characters being designed to remind you of the parts of yourself that you try to deny. This is not a story of heroes doing heroic things; it is a story of your awkward twenty-something self trying to find the guts to do the right thing.

The cinematography is particularly incredible. The movie is confined to a single modest apartment complex, and yet somehow it is chillingly beautiful. I never thought a man looking at a bunch of Polaroids pinned to a wall would be the recipe for a spectacular shot, but somehow it is. I haven't seen a movie with this kind of creepy and eerie beauty since Jean- Pierre Jeunet's early films.

Time lapse is the directorial debut for Bradley King, and yet you would never know it by watching the movie. If he can pull something like this off on his first try at a feature film, I cannot wait to see what comes next.
