Basir flubs his big point about fate, choices and paths - that no matter our lives, we face the chance to change for good or bad - by embracing all the clichés he can find, then filming them without nuance or style.
Unfortunately, the two stories add up to less than the sum of their parts, with the intertwining narratives failing to comment on each other in sufficiently resonant fashion.
Examining the cause and effect of a moment in time, the path not taken or road less traveled, and/or even the idea of a parallel universe, and above all, free will and choice, Qasim Basir delivers DESTINED, one of the most powerful films of the year . . .
[Destined is] a film as much about showing audiences our similarities beneath nature/nurture as it is the guilt and regret we carry everyday.
An amusing idea that runs out of steam not long after the premise is established.
Tracking one life, on two possible paths, the gloomy drama Destined derails into a rut of self-seriousness.
