| An imperfect masterpiece:
This truly could have been an amazing film deserving of much more than a tepid-warm 7/10.

At first you get the feeling that you're going to watch a love story unravel... but this slowly shifts between romance, science fiction and thriller at points. I barely noticed the transition myself... much in the way that District 9 morphs from a documentary into a science fiction tale seamlessly. They balanced each with precision so you don't know quite what you're watching at any given moment.

This film tries to convey many different concepts and fringe concepts ranging from physics to philosophy... but does not appropriate them convincingly or with clarity. I fully understood what it was trying to do and say... but it had tried to make the web of intrigue too intricate. It had many holes and unexplained loose ends which towards the middle made it unbelievable and pretentious. You know what they say - the more complex something is... the more chance there is of something going wrong. That applies with anything from technology to relationships (or storytelling in this case).

The merit of this film mainly lies in it's simpler plot points, the acting and direction.

If you're one of those people who doesn't believe that even fiction has to be believable (to some extent) to be enjoyable or you simply just don't understand what the concept of OXV is... then this is your film.
