Goofs

(at around 7 mins) Right after Hugh asks everyone at the table about their phone reception but before he starts talking about the comet from the 1930s there is a brief shot of Lee saying something. A cameraman can be seen crouched behind the sofa in the living room to the left of Lee's head, and he stays there for quite awhile. See more »

Kevin: [on the phone] I felt like I had a lot of time.
Em: I know. It's good. I'm good.
Kevin: Yeah. We're, um... we're just getting off the freeway.
Em: Yeah? Did, Hugh pick you up at the office, or...
Kevin: Yes, he was coming in from Oakland. He was late, of course. Then I took him... And then, he took me to some lawyer bar.

Brilliant Movie, could be a play, if you like that sort of thing like me.
18 October 2014 | by dieselboy1986See all my reviews

I haven't written a review in ages but I feel this deserves one.

I like to take gambles on movies with promise and it usually pays off - this one certainly did!

I'm no nerd but I like a bit of sci-fi. I also like movies with a small cast and a small set - maybe I am a nerd. ..or I just have good taste.

If you have a bit of intelligence and 20 minutes patience - you will be rewarded. It takes that time to be introduced to the characters and the scenario - alright? Alright.

The acting is pretty spot-on, considering I didn't recognize anyone. (Upon inspection this isn't a bunch of new actors, it has the dude from Homeland and a dude from Buffy.)

Without spoiling much it ends up tapping in to the 'alternate reality' or 'multiple reality' game - which is cool. It starts off being quite amusing for the viewer but escalates nicely in to a dramatic conclusion.

All I can say is watch it. I am looking forward to watching it again - it's gone straight in my 'watch again pile' which isn't very large.

I wish more movies were like this. Well done everyone.

(My honest review would be a 9, but it deserves a 10 here for the sake of it.)
