In an effort to prove his decades-old hypothesis that individuals with disabilities-those he describes as "sensory enlightened"-hold the key to unlocking a sixth sense, aging neuroscientist Dr. Frederik Amberger seeks out a promising graduate student, Jules Christopher. At the risk of alienating her partners in the University lab, and driven by her own complicated past, Jules gets caught up in his quest. When it's revealed that Amberger has been hiding a secret that has him on the run from the FBI, Jules and team must decide how far they're willing to go in their pursuit to unlock the next frontier of human sensory experience.

Making Sense does make some Science sense
12 April 2021 | by qyzenreviewsSee all my reviews

To start of with the direction it is decent as screenplay is slow but as the film progresses the characters get their arcs forward, If you are not a science person still you can get this.

The film initiates with school experiments but takes a different angle unleashing the sixth sense.

Clearly it is a low budget strike but it's exhilarating aforementioned the soundtracks gives an 80s synth vibe also cinematography is cold and appealing.

The actors aptly play their roles even though script couldn't have been better at few points.

A quote from this will stay for a while "Don't let the small failures define you."

It is worth watching as a sci-fi mystery.
