COUNTER CLOCKWISE (2016)
Dark and occasionally darkly funny time travel film about a scientist named Ethan who invents a time machine. Shooting himself six months in the future he finds he's wanted for the murders of his wife and sister. He then has to go back and try to figure out what happened, why and to stop it.
A bleak black science fiction comedy COUNTER CLOCKWISE surprised me with its dark nature. Rarely do time travel films dwell in such dark and darkly uncomfortable places. Yea you'll be laughing at some of what happens but some of the bits are just a tad unsettling. The result is a film I admire more than like - but which is good enough that I am actually looking forward to revisiting it when it's not the wee hours of the night
