Yesterday Was a Lie deals with some heady themes, and Brown strikes some nice notes on her character's frustrated journey, but the film is finally too disjointed and incomprehensible to be enjoyed as much else besides an exercise in style.

This film is highly recommended for those who appreciate a good, dark portrayal of the human psyche. Be warned: it won't hold your hand.

The sci-fi noir is a movie of intelligence, imagination and mostly beautiful execution, which is why Yesterday Was a Lie is not quite a success, but far more than a respectable failure.

There is brilliance here that demonstrates the best of what independent filmmakers strive to do.

It's a mixture of some very clever, but unguided ideas.

James Kerwin's conceptually ambitious low-budget debut offers stunning black-and-white HD cinematography, a sultry jazz score and a refreshingly high-minded script, but feels hopelessly amateurish in the acting department.
