Time Travel Documentary at it's Best!
6 April 2019 | by pajtajSee all my reviews

This is a documentary about time travel. It has less action than the documentary "Safety Not Guaranteed," which I really enjoyed. But I found this film way more subtle and just as fun. I've been around since 1960 and have never even heard of this film. Was it recently added to the time-stream? Pay attention to the visual and narration details. Sure there are plot holes and I'm sure you will find continuity issues, but isn't that the part of the mystique? Just relax and enjoy the finished product. I don't even think it's based on a real series of events....
