  • Summary: In a world in which the past, present, and future unfold simultaneously, Reversion tells the tale of Eva, a woman desperately trying to avoid a destiny in which she kills Marcus, the man she loves. Part gritty road movie, part lo-fi science fiction, part love story; Reversion traverses the sprawling landscape of Los Angeles in search of fate, free will, and the nature of morality.

    Trachinger clearly has the wit and the talent to do thought-provoking and challenging work. All she needs is a producer with similar aspirations, and she'll be well on her way toward fully achieving the promise on display here.

    While Reversion sets up a complex communication platform for a universe being slowly ripped apart, it doesn't know how to relate this idea in human terms.

    The film does a pretty good job of conveying the bleakness and pointlessness Eva and her fellow mutants feel, but it's as if Ms. Trachinger were reluctant to take the premise any deeper for fear of being accused of imitating "Memento" or "Groundhog Day" or any number of other trapped-in-time films.

    Like many similarly twisty tales, Reversion's narrative logic is undermined by its characters' irrational behavior.
