Goofs

Before the end title starts, there were some video clippings were playing to show the world wide revolt. Just after "Paris" it showed "Karachi" which is supposed to be in Pakistan. But clippings was of "Dhaka" and Bangladesh flags were waved by the people in the scene. Moreover, this was not a video of a protest at all. Rather it was a video of a pilgrimage for a religious gathering called 'Bishwa Iztema" held every year in January in Dhaka. See more »

Hang in there
16 March 2019 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

Several times a year I am tempted to walk out on a film because I don't like it, but I stay with the hopes that by the end it will somehow turn the corner. This is one of those films. The first 40 minutes is unengaging, with a series of characters we know little about and care about even less. Slowly but surely it turns the corners, and the hints, which are abundant, begin to make sense.

I really liked the aliens who are unlike any aliens we've ever seen before. Kudos to the people who thought this up.

In retrospect, the seemingly random flashes of the lives of a dozen people, makes sense and the film makers are trying to give you the feeling of the operations of a cell, where different people are acting independently. It works, but the price is a loss of engagement with any of the characters.

Definitely worth a look.
