It's always nice when a deeply considered film is also fun.
4 May 2017 | by zacksfansiteSee all my reviews

Alexander Tuschinski's "Timeless" plays like a study of ideology throughout the ages. It's as pleasing in commentary as it is in cinematography. Tuschinski's beautifully shot film is equipped with the ambition and sociopolitical motifs reminiscent of the early works of Tinto Brass. Absurd experimental moments and aesthetically spontaneous breakouts of song are apt means of exploring the truly absurd, and timeless, societal expectations kept alive across generations. The same actors are reused as different characters from scene to scene like archetypes as found across time. It's an idea faintly reminiscent of Todd Solondz's film "Palindromes". In the context of "Timeless", people are "palindromes" as they are the same when going backwards and forwards through ideological timelines. This is expressed as characters encountered by the protagonist and in the saccharine media and propaganda broadcasted within his world. His unlucky warps throughout time render him both a willing participant, even useful idiot, for a revolutionary plot, a victim of power and a guinea pig for the director's satirical exploration. Balanced with the heavy ideological study is a healthy dose of comedy making the film more easily digestible. "Timeless" is a film that'll sustain your anarchic laughter throughout and lust for Freedom! Girls! Guns! Revolution! However by film's end it will leave you in ideological rumination. It's always nice when a deeply considered film is also fun.
