Right after Ian is transported to the alternative reality, when Ian and The Helper are throwing punches at each other, as the camera spins around the room you can see shadows of several crew members in more than one occasion. See more »
Surprisingly twisty and atmospheric.
I can't say that I exactly enjoyed "Everywhen," but I was impressed by how well shot and edited it was, and how well it conveyed a sense of alternate worlds and time...not so much travel as...loops. You even have some sense of character development, as the personalities of the two leads change over the course of the hour and even reverse, becoming more like the other. How and why those personalities change isn't very well established, though, nor is what exactly was happening or had happened that set the plot into motion. I suppose a grand answer to the question of "What's going on?" isn't necessary if you look at the film as a sort of chamber piece set within a larger story, but it's frustrating to be left in the dark. Nevertheless, in mood and atmosphere, "Everywhen" felt like a pretty good episode of "Fringe" or "The X-Files."
Honestly, the worst thing about "Everywhen" were the gunfights between the protagonists and the police, including SWAT units, which were ridiculously one-sided. Those felt like childish male fantasies, straight out of video games these days, or one-sided games of cops and robbers back in the day.
