For thousands of years, only religion has offered an answer to what happens after death. Science is about to change that. With the help of a physicist, a blind medium, and Thomas Edison's final experiment, Brayden Taylor embarks on a quest to contact the afterlife. For his love to transcend dimensions, he must defy the laws of quantum physics. He must defy the balance nature demands. He must defy ... the God Model.Written by
Philip T. Johnson
30 May 2017. This $2,000,000 science fiction movie was directed by, produced by, written by, edited by, and visual effects by Philip T. Johnson. This Johnson movie takes established physical theories about quantum theory, electromagnetism, gravity, and the multiverse and then hypothetically combining electromagnetism and gravity to come up with a storyline involving love, grief, loss, and redemption that is consistent with that science. The new interspatial, interdimensional vision of Philip Johnson is compelling and fantastical, not repetitive, derivative, or mundane. The acting is also decent even though many might disagree with the performance by Kenneth Hughes as Louis Mastenbrook PhD who does come across without social skills which in turn might be confused with a lack of acting skills and translated as boring and dull. Yet taken in context, Hughes' performance actually can be seen as a real scientist nerd who doesn't have a developed sense of interpersonal interaction with people. The rest of the performances may not be polished nor slick, yet is it their very normal portrayals that can lend to the story being experienced instead allowing the actors become artificially largely than life.
The story involves the recent loss of Brayden Taylor's girlfriend who recently experienced a personal tragedy where Brayden and whose loss Brayden could be partly to blame. A series of events leads Brayden to uncover a machine that may be able to contact the "dead." With the help of two other people who were involved in an earlier experiment using information based on Thomas Edison's 1920 interviews and who also experienced their own tragedies, Braydon attempts scientifically to pursue contacting his late girlfriend with mysterious and fantastical results.
Einstein's God Model retains elements found in earlier movies about the search for life after death such as The House on Haunted Hill (1959), Brainstorm (1983), Flatliners (1990), and The Hereafter (2010). There's an eerie similarity to The Matrix (1999) and old telephones. This movie has an emotional pull like Robin Williams' What Dreams May Come (1998) as well as Random Quest (2006). And it offers a slight variation of the conceptual approach to its much more extravaganza neighborhood of Interstellar (2016) and the more comprehensible and normal but bewildering story than Beyond the Edge (2016). For a more scientific and philosophical connection to reality, What the Bleep Do We Know? (2004) offers an almost real life companion story to Einstein's God Model.
