The Ethan Hawke’s “Predestination” Takes the Old “Go Fuck Yourself” Way Too Literally

Now that the title got your attention, I’ll just skip that idea and I’ll simply continue with what I had in mind in the first place. I recommend “Predestination”. I’ve seen this movie last night, and let me tell you that: you’re mind is craving for this conceptual fuck!

The subject is all around this old time traveling story that we all know, except this time, the producers have chosen a violin box as a time-traveling device. Frankly, I don’t know what metaphor could that possibly be (if you got it, just tell me!), or if they picked it randomly, but it’s something new. You know, using music to flow through the temporal dimension, and all that.

When I watch a movie using the same time-traveling topic, I try to find the mistakes. The usual “Oh, but they were wrong here! It couldn’t have been possible to do that in the actual future, if they moved that raindrop a little bit to the left in the past, right?” type of mistakes. The truth is I wasn’t able to find one in “Predestination”, which means it’s a pretty smart project.

Finally, the lady, man! That geeky, fighty, anti-social redhead is kind of perfect. Too bad that she [spoiler alert!] is turning into a desperate guy who earns his living by writing cheap articles under the name of “The Unmarried Mother”.

If I have to say more, I’d be ruining the film. You want a movie review? Google it; these were just my humble opinions.
