If you consider yourself a fan of true, idea-based, thinking man's Science Fiction, then there is no reason at all for you to wait any longer in watching this movie. One of the best time-travel films ever produced. One of the previous comments stated that you should 1st watch this movie, and then go read the wikipedia article on it, and then watch it again. Could not agree more. You will not fully understand what exactly happens in this film on the first go around, if somebody tells you otherwise they are a "savant" or a liar. Most time-travel movies are heavily flawed when it comes to the logical theory, timeline, paradox, and basic physcis aspects. This movie is the probably the best one I've ever seen at eliminating those flaws, and creating a complex yet just-about-perfect timeline explanation. The man who sat down and wrote this movie (also acted and directed it) deserves accolades of the highest sort. To be honest, I never thought I would see a time-travel movie plot as perfectly executed as this. Yes, the movie was low budget, but you know what, I couldn't really tell (besides the lack of shameful CGI, big name stars, petty shootouts, explosions, and car chases) because I thought the acting was MUCH better than I was expecting, and the story line was so good I barely noticed this movie cost less than a 10 year old Nissan Altima. Well, I loved this movie, and I feel stupid for not having watched it earlier. It's good to know there are still some SUPERB SciFi movies out there, and you don't even need a fraction of a fraction of a James Cameron budget to make one. 9.5/10

Wow! I can't believe all the bad reviews here. This movie came highly recommended to me and I thought it was great. The time travel stuff gets a little complicated towards the end, but it's a puzzle worth solving. It's only 1 hour and 12 minutes, give it a shot!

HO-LEE SHIT!! this thing is nuts!, its a very impressive independent movie, so to those dissing it so easily let me see YOUR script. this whole move was practically written and produced, directed and acted by one guy! on the budget of a second hand car! Great stuff!

This film collected the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2004. It's a proper oldschool hardcore sci-fi story, high on realism, and very amusing for anyone who has ever hung out with engineers or software developers - these guys think and talk just like that! Damn funny. More than averagely heavy on the technojargon, will piss off folks who are not at least a little bit scientifically literate. But if you did physics to at least a high school level (and enjoyed it!) you will definetly love this brilliant flick. Total budget was only $7000 USD, showing folks who make multi-million dollar turkeys that there really is NO excuse for being a total douche. I say 5/5.

This moving is super complex. You gotta watch it at LEAST twice.

Very good film with a very realistic feel, normally with these kinds of movies as soon as it gets technical it gets silly but this pulls it off perfectly i feel like they really made this machine. *careful not to leave an spoilers* If you have not seen this film and are not sure, honestly give it a try. Its one of those films you hear nothing about and when you watch; leaves you wondering how.

this is the prove that you dont need millions of dolars to make a good movie. Just some creativity and good acting

Such an amazing movie, watch it once and it will blow your mind. After the first viewing, watch it another 2,3,4,500 times and you will continue to find little things you missed or didn't understand. The best mindF*#^ of a movie ever made.

Very interesting movie. Once you realize one part the rest becomes easy to understand.

First time watch and utterly flummoxed. Head-scratchingly confusing, if you like PI or DONNIE DARKO where lots of questions are presented but little by way of answers neatly laid out then this film is for you. It's engaging, frustrating, interesting and fascinating and a film that benefits from repeated viewings. Highly recommended.

Along with Donnie Darko, this is one of my favorite "intellectually confusing" movies. I have watched it about 5 or 6 times and it gets better and clearer every time. Absolute genious
