Synchronic ★★★★

Wow, so this kinda fucked me up. 

Reality bending indie sci-fi based around a mind melting designer drug... with a heavy dose of existentialism. 

Moorhead and Benson are just fantastic storytellers and excel at creating superbly crafted, fantasy inflected worlds. The world in Synchronic is constructed from a dreamy ambiguity but it’s also devastatingly traumatic. 

I went in only knowing the basic premise from the description and, if you haven’t watched this yet, that’s what I would recommend.
