Yeah... I can finally cross this off my list. It's kind of pretty much exactly what I thought it would be based on hearing everything about it: lots of dialogue, hard to understand, interesting take on time travel. Check, check and check. I feel like the obtuse dialogue is a tad cryptic most of the time... like there's authentic shorthand and then there's alien language... but the jargon replaces the budget so I can't fault it for doing its thing.

I think I understood 75% of it which isn't bad for the first time. I don't know if there will be a second, but I didn't hate it by any means.

So. We come to the end. it's 12:30, time for the last film of DVRfest 2013. This has gone on a day longer than usual and I threw in a few last minute bonus films to make this the biggest fest since the second one which was epic. For the last film I may very well fall asleep so expect final notes tomorrow. All I'll say is that I've seen it before and really like its 80s wackiness and the Art of Noise song at the end was really formative to my love of samples in songs. I listened to the cassette of the soundtrack a ton when it came out. Let's do it one more time.
