‘Omni Loop’ Review: A Poignant Sci-fi Statement About Life And Mortality – SXSW

‘Omni Loop’ review: a poignant sci-fi statement about life and mortality – SXSW

As might seem obvious from the outset, science itself is something of a MacGuffin here, as is evident when Paula suggests they take Zoya’s pills to be examined by The Nanoscopic Man, an experimental guinea pig who was shrunk to invisibility and has been left in a laboratory drawer to get smaller ever since. At 107 minutes, it does slightly outstay its welcome, partly because the resetting of time becomes, inevitably, repetitive, but mostly because Paula becomes a lesser character by the end, and the pair of them have so much chemistry together that the charismatic Edebiri is sorely missed. Title: Omni Loop Festival: SXSW(Narrative Spotlight) Sales agent: WME Director/screenwriter: Bernardo Britto Cast: Mary Louise Parker, Ayo Edebiri, Hannah Pearl Utt, Chris Witaske, Carlos Jacott, Harris Yulin, Steven Maier, Eddie Cahill Running time: 1 hr 47 min
