Over at Spectacular Optical, Kier-La Janisse writes a great piece about three examples of "cerebral sci-fi" showing at this year's Fantasia Festival: Mike Cahill’s Another Earth, William Eubank’s Love, and EXIT. They're films that share an interest in "psychedelic space" and parallel worlds.
“In EXIT, an age-old legend holds that there is a secret door somewhere in the middle of the city that opens into a parallel universe, and the demoralized citizens of our world spend copious amounts of time searching for the door that will bring them happiness. But in Calvino-esque fashion, the city keeps changing and growing, making their quest more impossible by the day. Maps and magic alike are consulted in the hope that the fabled door is real and that their depressing existence isn’t all there is.”
