At around 1h:50m, a character speaks of turning left or turning right in "this garden of forking paths."
"The Garden of Forking Paths" is a 1941 short story by Jorge Luis Borges that speculates about taking turns left or right in a winding, branched garden leading to different points in space, time, and possible outcomes. This is a common theme in Borges' work, and very much fits in with events in the movie. See more
