The Best Time-Travel Movies That Mess with Your Head

Sep 24, 2012 Comments

Based on Audrey Niffenegger’s book of the same name, the film suffers from a serious case of the narrative “huhs?” as we follow the story of Henry DeTamble (Eric Bana) and his long-suffering love, Claire (Rachel McAdams). It seems that Henry has a genetic disease that causes him to randomly jump around in time, which makes it pretty hard to maintain a relationship with the guy. Yet Claire is a romantic trooper, so she masochistically tries to build a life with a dude that often literally disappears. 

The choppy narrative makes it hard to embrace the time travel as anything but annoying and what could have been a clever idea instead sinks under the weight of the device.
