A little-known you’ll want to know

Rating: Pretty Damn Good

Coherence is a fascinating low budget film that uses an intriguing script and natural actors to create a film that’s part detective story, part sci-fi, part relationship drama that both men and women with an interest in intelligent films will enjoy.

Coherence movie review, by Kephra Rubin

In Coherence, some parts feel forced, and it pulls you out of the story for a moment

What you may not like:

-The low budget limits what they can do, but to its credit they don’t really do anything cheesy either.
-The acting isn’t always “natural” sometimes it feels fake and forced. For the most part, the film almost feels like hidden cameras watching a bunch of true-life friends having a conversation, other parts seem awkward. It’s as if the actors themselves dislike certain lines enough to struggle to commit to them.
-Spoon-fed portions of the script. This may be why certain lines feel very forced in comparison to the majority of the script. Things are being explained by the characters to help the audience along, but they seem like things no normal person would ever speculate. It’s something writers are often forced to do. I suppose some explanation is needed, but perhaps one more rewrite might have polished that up a bit. At the end of the day it’s not a big enough problem to detract from the enjoyment of the film

Coherence movie review by Kephra Rubin

A captivating film that combines detective story, sci fi and relationship drama into one fascinating piece.

What you’ll love:

-Wonderful concept; perhaps if you think about it, it’s something that has been done before, but to my knowledge, it’s never been done like this, as soon as I finished watching it I had to watch it again
-An intriguing detective side to the story. You really fall into the curiosity of the group and want to figure out what’s going on just as much as everyone else.
-A unique twist ending, again, maybe it’s “been done before” but not like this, it feels unique and at least for me it came as a surprise, which is rare.
-Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will see Zanders in this film

For anyone who is a fan of the also obscure film Primer, I would wager you’ll like this one quite a bit as well. For those who have never heard of either, 12 Monkeys, Déjà vu, perhaps even Oculus and other films of that nature won’t mirror this film at all, but represent a similar vein of movie genre that Coherence fits into nicely, if you like stuff like that, you’ll love this.

The more profitable intelligent movies are, the more will get made, I always say. I’ll definitely be throwing money at Coherence one way or another before the night is over. Give it a try and see if you’re equally enthused.

Thanks for reading,
Kephra

  1. Greetings from the professor! The story-line is always the most important. Have you seen the Punchy Land’s movie review?
