A man struggles with the tragic memories of his past to make sense of his present, but soon realizes that time isn't the enemy he thinks it is. Having cut himself off from the world, Steve can no longer run away from the demons of his past. Nothing will silence the voices in his head. With his world coming apart, Steve hopes he can twist his reality and change his fate. He connects the events of his life to discover how he ended up alone and broken but maybe there is still hope. Through the perspective of Steve, a morally complex man, the film is about the choices that we make and how for many- this path can be out of fear disguised as practicality. The characters Schumacher and Cummings have constructed tell us a lot about our existence, most needing motivation to do anything and that we struggle to learn anything without desperation. In life we ponder too much over the bigger moments, but often forget to cherish the smaller, more beautiful moments that are displaced throughout. The film is an ablution of sorts. Steve is cleansing himself of all his regrets and mistakes, letting us witness those re-lived, many images burning on the retina long after. It is a film that is both lyrical and deeply grounded in its character work, a balancing act that is phenomenal to behold. It is never preachy nor moralising. Whilst there is memorable dialogue throughout, it is what is unsaid that resonates. It’s the look of a morally complex man when his wife is unphased that she has been caught having an affair. It’s that nervous glance of a child when being asked to choose between his parents. The film does not impose but presents us with a question, if there was multiple versions of yourself, possibilities infinite, which decisions and memories would you keep? Harry Heath
