Carruth challenges us to imagine the impossible, then asks us to consider the moral, ethical and spiritual implications of what we have witnessed, and put those considerations on equal footing with man's desire to go where no man has gone before.
What's impressive -- aside from the fact that Carruth got the thing made in the first place -- is that the movie's tone skates right between coherence and an appreciation for endless, even infinite possibilities.
The humorless, self-important narrative is so impenetrable, you'd have to consult a synopsis to know they're traveling back and forth in time in increments of a few hours, with unforeseen consequences.
