Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.19.15] scifi thriller noir

Expect a full review of Synchronicity from TAD 2015 in the coming days, but I really wanted to flag this release for you adventurous sci-fi fans out there. Synchronicity is a supurbly shot and evocative noir that fans of Blade Runner or Primer are likely to fall in love with. A passion for retro soundtracks is also a prerequisite.

The film comes from Jacob Gentry the director of The Signal stars Brianne Davis, AJ Bowen and the ever awesome Michael Ironside.

A mind-bending 'Sci-fi Noir' in the tradition of Dark City, Blade Runner where physicist Jim Beale invents a machine that can fold space-time and a rare Dahlia appears from the future.

He must find the flower's identical match in the present to prove his machine works. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of a mysterious girl, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that he's fallen prey to a femme fatale trying to steal his invention, Jim travels back in time to stop her betrayal before it happens. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about the machine, the girl, and his own reality.

Marina covered Synchronicity back in early fall, so check out a couple more clips.

Loved "The Signal" so I might give it a chance, but that trailer looked horrible.
