TeN's rating of the film For the Plasma

A pastel-drenched, New England take on playful, Jacques Rivette-style conspiracism. In their BAM Q&A the directors described the film in terms of post-collegiate aimlessness. But instead of tired tropes of millenial drifting, we get a scifi story about obsessive pattern-recognition, where a dead-end summer job spent staring at a screen turns into disciphering the secrets of the universe. A fascinating & unique debut.
