Time Lapse

Time Lapse - (currently playing on Netflix)

Finally, a pretty decent Sci-fi movie with a nice little twist at the end. The premise of the film is that a camera spits out a future photograph of the living room in its line of sight, every 24 hours. The 3 people living in the apartment where the camera is directed find out about it and from there on in things begin to spiral wildly out of control.

This film was interesting in a similar way that "Primer" was interesting with time travel, in that it is done in an unique way not seen a hundred times before. In this, the future ends up dictating the present and making present events happen to correspond with the what the picture from the future shows.

Fair warning this is more of a drama-mystery-suspense than sci-fi. The only sci-fi element was the camera. Reminded me somewhat of an old Twilight Zone episode in that respect. That and the story seemed strangely familiar as well. As with pretty much all time travel films, there are plot holes. All in all... a good flick and definitely worth checking out on a boring afternoon/evening.
