He keeps up the chase and whacks at it a few times. Then, we get a look at what he's been trying to flatten. In what sort of universe have we found ourselves? Who's in danger?

Christopher Nolan at his beginning
19 October 2018 | by forbesxavierSee all my reviews

The short film isn't amazing but the idea is so terrific.

The idea is clearly original.

This is about a man pursued by himself.

Very short but intense and powerful!
