Fantasy metaphor, not science fiction
25 June 2017 | by doubtitallSee all my reviews

Unfortunately, it is common for fantasies like El Incidente to be billed as science fiction when they are far from it. They can call it "surreal" science fiction, but it's still not remotely science fiction. It is fantasy.

I'm very tolerant regarding reality getting bent or even mutilated in science fiction, but that isn't what happens in this movie. It is a metaphorical fantasy way of seeing the universe, and unabashedly so. It is not a space warp thing.

I give it a 1/10 if you're looking for sci-fi, or a 7/10 if you are looking for a metaphorical fantasy.
