For his final assignment, a top temporal agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time. The chase turns into a unique, surprising and mind-bending exploration of love, fate, identity and time travel taboos.
Eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a final test with just one question. It seems simple yet confusing that soon, tensions begin to unravel.
Three friends discover a time machine which takes pictures of the future. They begin to use it to win race bets and everything goes fine till one gets greedier than another. They begin to lose faith in each other giving a sense of backstabbing as uglier truths unfold in the photos and the situation soon gets out of control.Written by
The decision to have the camera be instant film vs digital, was because it made sense for an aging retired scientist to build the steam punk-like Polaroid machine out of the old tech that he had lying around his apartment. But because Polaroid film is hard to obtain, the Art Department for the movie faked thousands of Polaroid pictures by shooting them on digital, color correcting them in Photoshop to look like instant film, cutting the insides out of old Polaroids they got on eBay, and then sliding the printed digital pictures into the instant film sleeves.

The huge camera takes pictures and the flash is green. However, when the three tenants enter the room for the first time where the camera is, the flash is white. See more »

This movie was a nice relief from mind-numbing Hollywood films. It's not an arty-farty indie movie, it's just a good thriller with more believable dialog and characters than most Hollywood films.
If you enjoy thoughtful time travel or sci-fi movies, definitely give this a go.
The concept is great and could lend itself towards a sequel with different characters. It's rare that I will bother to rate a movie on IMDb, but now and again I come across a thoughtful movie that stands out from the usual stream of cliché films.
I think the movie poster is a bit of a letdown though. To be honest it reminds me of a 90s straight-to-VHS movie. Anyway, ignore the cover and give this movie a shot. (EDIT: the poster I was talking about had a green and black tone to it, it has since been changed and looks much nicer)
