It's impossible to hate a movie like this, even if you have to stop and rewind a lot and rewatch the movie a few times to sort out what's going on. Zounds, a real movie that makes me think, and think hard! Something that I don't think I've had to do since Memento. Or maybe even 12 Monkeys. And joy of joys, it is that rarest bird of the Hollywood jungle: a GOOD, authentic, science fiction film.
Oh sure, you may say, there's tons of SF out there. You, sir, are wrong. I do not refer to the fantasy drivel with physics and biology from an alternate universe that lets you go "vroom" in space and change people's identity by injecting with them a syringe of someone else's DNA.
Better still, this movie is a shining example of how to make a film with no real budget. It should be held forth as a beacon to all those disenfranchised film students who think they have to either have millions of dollars and connections to make a film... or else they have to make something mind-numbingly artsy and incomprehensible like Wavelength. Yes Michael Snow, I will never get that 45 minutes of my life back.
Long story short, if you like real SF, if you like to think, if you are keen on movies with real stories, or if you want to be inspired by someone who can make a movie for practically nothing, this is worth the watch... though you'll probably have to watch it twice.
