Synchronic

Critics Consensus

Synchronic sets off on an intriguingly idiosyncratic sci-fi journey that should satisfy fans of Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson's earlier work.

  • There's a sense that you've stepped into these time-traveling bad trips and can feel the ground shifting beneath your feet. It's Synchronic's saving grace.

    October 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Still, it's the duo's wonky, systematic approach to the gimmick that makes "Synchronic" so much fun.

  • "Synchronic" is easy to applaud for being what Steve might describe as "brain damage orangutan fucking crazy," but Benson and Moorhead's ode to the present doesn't leave you with a newfound appreciation for the moment at hand.

  • A great buddy relationship is at the center of a film full of big ideas and psychedelic journeys.

    October 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • While it offers some gripping and/or darkly beautiful images, it's ultimately more about ideas than spectacle.
