Synchronic ★★★½

I loved exploring the sci-fi premise and seeing where the story went. And I appreciated that it tried to have some deeper character moments, even if they didn't always seem to share a cohesive thematic center. Looked and sounded great, had some bold directing choices that I appreciated, and Anthony Mackie was very good. The ending was nice but it ultimately made the film feel a little familiar where otherwise it was pretty original.
