Pinkface: Time travel stories usually have lots and lots of exposition. Mind-bending concepts like predestination paradox require it, don’t they? The fact that this story can be told as a silent film, without intertitles speaks volumes about the editor’s talent. Images and evocative music guide us through this story, and its associated emotions - and the synchronization of them is most impressive. Don’t let the grindhouse slasher schlock imagery mislead you – there’s some real artistic depth here.
