Re: Movies Seen in 2012

Repeaters. This is an indie time loop movie about three people in rehab who keep repeating Wednesday. There is a certain gilding the lily aspect to the metaphor time loop=doing the same old stupid shit that's ruining your life. Also it has a good dose of arthouse fallacy (nothing happening is Realistic.) Plus the basic code of morality in this play is not terribly sophisticated. But on the plus side, this is a labor of love, with excellent performances from most of the actors. The movie's script actually coordinates the themes with the vaguely SFnal metaphor. And the moral code may be a trifle simplistic but it is a moral code, not sensationalist wallow with a smug moral appended for cover.
