Overrated? Maybe.

I am quite torn on this film. I think I enjoy the concept and experimentation with this movie more than I actually like it. If you wanna see a kind of elaborated and improved version of this film, just watch 12 Monkeys.

Such a great, unique and revolutionary short film, but so hard to compare and rank.
