  • This sci-fi indie... imagines a near-future dystopia where retrograde and anterograde amnesia afflict humanity... Director Claire Carre and co-writer/producer Charles Spano artfully design five story lines for a tragic take on the loss of self-knowledge.

    February 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A lovely meditation on identity and the difficulties of personal connection, Embers is a descendent of Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker in both tone and mise en scne.

    August 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • While one wishes Carr, who shares screenplay credit with Charles Spano, might have hung those stirring visuals on more involving plotting, "Embers" nevertheless makes a strong, not to mention timely, impression.

  • It's metaphorical aspects like that, and the striking visuals that delineate the stark contrast between the worlds above and below ground, that make Embers memorable.

    April 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • An elegant, brooding drama with a sprawling international cast, the movie presents its haunting premise with barely any explanation, leaving viewers to steadily make sense of the chaos along with the confused protagonists.

  • Claire Carre's debut feature could be described as a mass-scale Memento, but that thumbnail sketch misses both the pic's impressive conceptual breadth and its numbing dramatic stasis.
