Mike Cahill United States, 2014

Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film I Origins

A truly relevant concept - fueled by uncharacteristic performances - in the wake of a more global spiritual awakening. Unfortunately, Cahill takes the wrong approach, inexplicably trying to build suspense where there is none. It could have been a convincing celebration of the metaphysical world. Instead, it feels like a second-rate thriller.
