Movie Info

When David Bowie died in 2016, a hole in the universe was created. This hole swallowed Edward (Ray Santiago) as he was having a heated discussion with his partner June (Allison Tolman). 24 years later, the hole miraculously spits Edward out, unchanged from the day he was taken. Upon his return, however, he discovers that everything has changed: the society is now run by highly advanced technology, and June (Ann Dowd) is now 60 years old. She, however, is unchanged and has always been awaiting his return. Written and directed by Liz Manashil.

  • Well-acted, original sci-fi indie is short and sweet.

  • It speaks to [director Liz Manashil's] talents that she can make something so resonant whilst being forced to dance around the emotional core of the film.

  • I did enjoy the linking of a transcendent artist like David Bowie causing change in the people's lives in a variety of ways. Some which are not obvious.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Speed of Life reminds us that the art of our idols, the fire, and the passion, survive the artist and that their immortality is you keeping that fire burning.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Speed of Life is a well-meaning tribute to David Bowie but could use a little more stardust to truly feel magical

    January 8, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Manashil has made the rare futuristic fantasy that is driven by emotion rather than special effects - one that examines an intriguing what-if as well as paying homage to a great artist.
