Great ending - I think...
6 January 2020 | by DarrenJCampbellUKSee all my reviews

Great bit of proper sci-fi. Not sure there were any special effects - more of a dramatised thought experiment. Production values pretty good given the obvious low budget. Without getting into spoiler territory, if you got to the end without any lingering thoughts, then watch/think again - I think there's an important conclusion to be drawn that many might miss.
