Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.22.16] scifi thriller drama mystery noir

Jacob Gentry's retro futuristic, time-tripping noir, Synchronicity (review), was one of my favourite films that emerged out of last year's festival circuit, and now that the film is out for the world to see, we thought we'd get the director on line to chat about the movie.

In the interview below, Gentry talks about the various iterations of the idea, the influences on the style of the film, Ben Lovett's moog-driven score, and whether he's ready for the inevitable backlash from the time travel logic police when audiences start picking apart the film's paradoxes.

Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. But in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower's identical match in the present.

Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life's work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.

Synchronicity stars Chad Mcknight, AJ Bowen, Brianne Davis, Scott Poythress, and Michael Ironside. It's out in theaters and on VOD tomorrow, January 22, 2016.

Here's a spoiler-free look at the film and a taste of Ben Lovett's amazing score:
