Movie Info

Being steadily crushed under the weight of debt, unemployment, and increasing isolation, Jim reaches a breaking point. Over a game of solitary Russian roulette he contemplates an unspeakable act of violence as a way of leaving his mark. He is stopped short by a vision of his deceased wife who convinces him that he should instead focus his remaining resources into an act of creation. Armed with his wife's frozen eggs and a new resolve, Jim secures the services of a large biotech firm to help him create an heir who will be engineered to overcome the obstacles of common men.

Critic Reviews for Jim

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

Morris-Burke does deserve applause for what he has accomplished technically on a shoestring budget. His location scout is a hero. But the over-complicated, under-emotional Jim's reach ultimately exceeds its grasp.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

A fatally unwieldy construct of naturalistic drama and cataclysmic sci-fi.

Top Critic

Thematically ambitious but poorly executed sci-fi tale.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Unfortunately, each narrative strand is so packed with straight-out-of-writing-class dialogue that the film feels longer than its hour-and-46-minute running time.

Morris-Burke's ambitions outweigh his uneven execution -- some performers are better than others, the effects work is highly variable -- but there's undeniable talent in every frame.

Top Critic

Though one senses that the movie in Morris-Burkes head makes more sense than the movie onscreen, his technical virtuosity and thematic ambition mark him as a filmmaker of promise.
