Year: 2014 Director: The Spierig Brothers
Based on Robert A. Heinlein’s short story “All You Zombies”. Our hero is a time travelling “Temporal Agent” who flits around preventing crimes. On his last mission he’s out to get “The Fizzle Bomber”. The criminal whose bomb disfigures him so badly at the beginning of the film that, post surgery, he looks like Ethan Hawke. 1992, 1978, 1945, 1963, 1985 are all visited in a complex time travel loop where no one is who they first appear to be. And of course Noah Taylor is the enigmatic supervisor of the whole shebang, time travel supervision being his forte (see also Vanilla Sky and Edge Of Tomorrow). If you can buy into the whole silly time travel thang (easy) and accept Sarah Snook could pass for a man (difficult) this is top notch sci-fi. And it’s free! On the youtube. Can’t go wrong.
Might appeal to people who enjoyed:
Vanilla Sky, Edge Of Tomorrow, Looper – but better. Blade Runner – but not as good (what is?).
