COHERENCE (2013)


#52 is the independent film Coherence (2013) which has an extremely interesting premise but way too much improv seals its fate. Eight people attend a dinner party while a comet passes very close to the earth. There is a blackout and when some of the individuals go outside to see what's up, they find a similar house with the same dinner guests - themselves in some sort of time paradox. This intriguing idea is derailed by way way WAY too much improvisation which makes this idea tedious and frustrating until the very end. If someone had bothered to write a script this could have been a great addition to the time paradox canon. Instead I'm left cursing at the screen and wishing it would hurry up and end. Sigh.
