To write about Predestination is, in essence, to spoil it. For a film like this, which deals with time travel and intricate plotlines, is it best to discuss the film’s plot, themes, or aesthetics? I’ve tried to start this review in so many different places, but none of them seem right. Maybe it’s my mind […]
