Reversion - Directed by Mia Trachinger.
Eva (Leslie Silva), a mutated human, has no sense of past, present or future and no moral compass to guide her through any of her decisions in life. She realizes, at some point in time, that she will shoot her boyfriend, Marcus (Jason Olive), but she doesn’t know how or why and nor does he know or care for that matter. Leslie Silva shines in a raw and vibrant performance as the tough, charismatic Eva. It’s hard to take your eyes of her whenever she’s onscreen, just like when watching Pam Grier or Wanda De Jesús in other films. Writer/director Mia Trachinger takes bold risks that eventually pay off through the intricately layered story which manages to be both original and, at times, even unpredictable. None of surprises will be revealed here, but it’s worth mentioning the dazzling, stylish visuals that add a dreamlike effect to many scenes. Despite a somewhat confusing plot that becomes mind-boggling whenever it jumps back and forth between past, present and future, at least it remains refreshingly imaginative, provocative and suspenseful from start to finish. Number of times I checked my watch: 3. No distributor, yet.
