A scintillating sci-fi throwback, Vanishing Waves draws inspiration from Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky, among others, but without feeling plagiaristic.
For those who found Inception too plotty and sexless, Lithuanian director Kristina Buozyte's sleek sci-fi reverie is hereby advised.
The Hollywood Reporter
Trippy in the best sense, Vanishing Waves adds a healthy dose of eroticism to its familiar sci-fi genre.
Yes, it’s derivative to a fault — but a deserved midnight-movie cult following is all but assured.
The New York Times
This Lithuanian love story from Kristina Buozyte offers a discomfiting blend of visual ecstasy and narrative sterility.

Toward the end, despite the wintry script and chilly acting, some emotion begins to break through. But it’s never a good sign when the art direction offers more fascination than the sex.
