MINI-REVIEW: The Infinite Man

1 hour 25 minutes



Sometimes, the best sci-fi stories don't require intellectual ideas or boatloads of special effects.  With "The Infinite Man," the thing that drives this sci-fi story is actually a man trying to redo a vacation with his girlfriend that would end up ruining their relationship altogether.  This man is played by Josh McConville, and he is one of only three cast members featured in the film.  Without spoiling anything, this movie takes several turns into very surreal, strange, and sometimes funny directions, all leading up to an ending that is bitter-sweet to say the least.  I highly doubt anyone outside of those who attended certain festivals where this was playing would have heard of this film, but this is definitely something that people should look out for.  Does it have its problems and inconsistencies involving its time travel aspect?  Absolutely.  Does that change my overall feelings on the movie?  Not at all.  If you're looking for a quirky, off-beat, and creative sci-fi love story, then I recommend looking out for this little treat from down under if it ever comes to your area.  If it doesn't, then definitely look out for it when it eventually is released on DVD, Blu-Ray, and/or VOD here in the States.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
