Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

Once again, a film based on a Philip K. Dick idea bears at most a passing resemblance to its inspiration — but this time it's because, instead of piling illogic on high concept, Hollywood has transformed his short story into a swoonsome romance. Strangely, that seems to be a better fit. Maybe Dick had a softer centre than we ever knew. The themes of screenwriter George Nolfi's first feature film as director will delight philosophers. Does free will exist, or are we travelling along pre-determined paths — and if so, who determines them, and to what extent?

Love has taken a battering lately. Blue Valentine, Rabbit Hole and The Kids Are All Right have all shown it busting up, breaking down and dying hard. Love's had it tough. Love's had Twilight, for pity's sake. But things weren't always like this. One of the greatest romantic fantasies in cinema history, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's A Matter Of Life And Death (1946), was illuminated by an idea so simple and so beautiful that it makes your heart beat harder just to say it: that a single tear shed for love might stop heaven in its tracks.

The age-old debate over fate vs. free will has been and always will be a tough theme to crack in any medium, but with the benefits of modern filmmaking technology the theory can be explored in ways that Philip K. Dick never imagined. However, when one relies too heavily on spectacle to tell a story, a piece of cerebral science fiction can quickly become just another action extravaganza. In this day and age there's a fine line between the two; The Matrix walked that tightrope with style and grace while Next never found its footing in the first place.

A short story by Philip K Dick, first published in 1954, has been freely adapted by Bourne screenwriter George Nolfi, who has turned it into a glitzy futurist conspiracy thriller, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. It's played entirely straight, but overlaid with a correctly judged note of jaunty absurdity, as if a new version of The Manchurian Candidate had been written by Charlie Kaufman. This is an essentially light-hearted picture, and – with a pinch of salt – slips down pretty nicely as a dark, speculative comedy on the themes of love, free will and fate.

One suspects that this sleek and diverting directorial debut from George Nolfi will find it tough to escape from the immense shadow of Christopher Nolan's similarly themed 'Inception'. Which is a shame, as it shares just as much common interest with such conspiracy-inspired sci-fi as 'The Dead Zone', 'They Live!' and 'The Manchurian Candidate'. And as a film that fuels the belief that the political agenda is set by a cadre of shady, back-room types, it has genuine substance.

This movie is easily the most imaginative and fun to watch love story I have seen in ages. All the elements of a compelling film are here--mystery, action, tension, lofty concepts, and kissing. Matt Damon's performance is effortless and elegant, just like Emily Blunt's dancing. Together they form this electric partnership that made me a conspirator in their quest to be together against all odds. Director/screenwriter George Nolfi creates one of the most watchable adaptations of the author's work.
