When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality—and the flow of time itself.

    Starts slow and comes across as Noir but it was touching and fun. Worth the watch. Mackey was great as always.
  • Fantastic!

    The filmmaking duo who’ve written & directed three equally brilliant & iconic indie horror titles, “Resolution,” “Spring,” and “The Endless,” have returned with their most ambitious film to date, “Synchronic.” ”Synchronic” leans into the dark fantastical & cosmic horror elements the filmmakers are known for — but this time it’s turned up to 11, and sustained the entire film as opposed to being limited to the third act or climactic final scene. Then there’s the performances. CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES. I was gobsmacked by Mackie’s & Dornan’s chemistry on screen. The whole “contentious buddy cop partners who learn to work together despite their personal differences” [note: they are paramedics, not police officers of any kind just to be clear] routine could’ve easily fallen flat because it’s such a cliché in dramatic storytelling — both in TV & film. However, their characters’ profession is extremely significant towards each of their own arcs throughout the film as well as the general plot about a new synthetic drug on the streets of New Orleans that quickly derails both of their lives in rather uniquely separate ways. While the subtext is obvious, it’s never too preachy or aggressive about making sure the viewer knows what this film is ultimately saying. Come for the brilliant filmmakers, stay for the performances, and then re-watch it a couple of times because — as one graffitied remarks in the film puts it — “time is a lie.”
  • Great Concept Wasted on Average Story

    By Rino The Bouncer
    The movie starts with a great concept, beautifully executed and performed by all the actors. The problem is by the second half, this beautiful concept becomes nothing more than a vehicle for a typical “looking for someone” type of story. Without spoiling much, it is more about an average overdone “message” covered with a beautiful concept and twisted ideas.
