A play-date for your brain.

Some yuppie types get together for dinner. A comet passes overhead. Things get...odd. A play-date for your brain.

Low-budget sci-fi is mind bendingly entertaining

Coherence, a tense, cerebral sci-fi thriller is the directorial debut of James Ward Byrkit. On a night when a comet is passing unusually close to earth, a group of friends gather for a dinner party taking place in the home of married couple Mike (Nicholas Brendon) and Lee (Lorene Scafaria). However, the night quickly takes a turn for the unexpected as power goes out in the neighbourhood, all except one house. The easy-going banter doesn't take long to get tense as we start seeing the cracks in these relationships.

This film is best experienced without any previous knowledge on what it's about, so I won't say any more about the plot. What I will say is that Coherence is a prime example of independent, low budget film making done right. It proves that you don't need a huge budget to create a compelling story. Whilst some may be put off by the low budget feel and the dialogue heavy film, I found the largely improvised dialogue to be refreshingly real. The ensemble cast is a vehicle for the audience, being as clueless as we are to the events as they unfold. Much like the characters, the actors themselves had no idea what was going on, as the director went into the filming process not with a screenplay, but a twelve-page treatment. Each day, the cast were provided with character notes and a brief idea of the situation, and they managed to pull off remarkable performances. I found the shaky camerawork, often going out of focus, to be a bit distracting, but it was less of a stylistic choice and more a matter of necessity as Byrkit wanted the actors to have a freedom of movement, allowing them to do what felt natural for their character.

Although I did have questions about the logic used by characters at certain points in the film, it was remarkably easy to suspend disbelief. There really is a lot to enjoy about Byrkit's method, being able to immediately hook the audience and keep us relentlessly trying to guess the direction the story is going in until the very end.

Better than my expectation!

Being a low budget film with actors we don't see to much, I wasn't interested in Coherence at first. I thought the movie will be a wastage of my time. But I couldn't have been more wrong. The movie has good writing, dialog, all around great acting, and keeps you interested with nice twists throughout the whole 1 hour and 29 minutes. It starts with this nice and relaxing vibe and casually turns into a sci-fi nightmare thingy. I loved it. This movie is perfect for those who already watched most of the famous sci-fi movies and now in search for more.
