Fascinating.... shouldn't there be some regulation by the Time Police... at least there should be an investigation because of the apparent violation of the Temporal Prime Directive... not to mention that "strange things happen to wizards that meddle with time"...

This video was great. Complex and very simple at the same time.

Reminds me of the movie Primer. I'd definitely recommend it if you liked this short film.

It's like a mix of Groundhog Day and Twelve Monkeys.

I get it... the cigarettes are time travelers too.

That's brillant in a retarded kind of way.

Yes, what a fascinating short film! From a geek perspective, I'm kind of glad to see this "rule" of time travel explored in a new way. Since it's still "science fiction", this new take on the "rule" allows for interesting narrative! And wonderfully simple and wonderfully acted and filmed, with potential for more! Tres bon!

I agree, very much like the movie "Primer," which was excellent.

Fabulous. Atmospheric and fiendishly clever.

Cor, feedback loop.

Not bad, reminded me heavily of Primer as well. The music is hit-and-miss tho, and cued poorly.

Also, the double-up on the final ashtray shot is extraneous.
