Two friends are put up against each other as one of them invents a time machine, and the other one travels back in time to change the past, which is a big risk considering how unstable time traveling can be.
Imagine waking up not knowing who you are, who you were, or who you will be, in a place familiar yet foreign. The world is in chaos and it twists around you like a snake. Everything brings a vague recollection of memories you just can't grasp. You meet others like you - lost, confused, and enraged - while the rest seem to ignore your very existence. Who is your enemy? Who is your ally? Is that really your wife? Who can be trusted? Meet Joseph List, bewildered white male, midlife mad, drifting in a time warp where answers just generate more questions. Joe knows something happened to him -- something powerful and personal -- and he is desperate to find out what it is. Is it meaningful or meaningless? Can it be fixed or is it not broken? LOOP is one man's journey into a senseless world of bent time and elastic reality - a world where he finds that the sanity he seeks is the insanity he's lost.Written by
What were you looking for?
Yeah... my meds, I was looking for my meds. I need my meds.
What do you mean meds? Why were you looking for meds?
I don't know, I just woke up and it felt automatic. That's it, that's why, right?
What do you mean?
I'm hallucinating. I gotta find the meds, I gotta get right.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! I am not a hallucination! Believe me, I exist...

Loop has to be one of the best films I've seen this year, and certainly one of the most important. To give a synopsis of this film wouldn't do it any justice, and would only take away the experience of actually viewing the film first hand. Written and directed with intelligence and pure gusto by Pericles Lewnes, this film is a scathing social commentary on how we are as a society after 9/11, and how we lost our identity as a nation of the now. The last 30 minutes of the movie has some of the best dialog I've ever seen. This is the kind of movie you watch twice, first for the experience and second for the details and meaning. This is a masterpiece of low/no budget film. A must see . . . . .
