Movie Reviews

  • Christopher MacBride's second feature probably tries to do a little too much and the time-hopping narrative can be difficult to follow at times, but "Flashback" is a fascinating memory mystery
    by Rob Aldam [Backseat Mafia ]
  • Christopher MacBride oversees style and performance, but there's limited appeal to the story, which is always most comfortable in puzzle mode, but the solution isn't worth the time invested
    2.5 of 5 by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com ]
  • Christopher MacBride is always in full control of the modestly scaled feature's refined aesthetics and storytelling focus, smoothly maintaining viewer interest if not always our full involvement
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • an annoying, self-important head trip of a film; "Flashback" raises lots of questions about the subjective nature of the characters' reality, and then just shrugs its shoulders and moves on
    by Josh Bell [CBR ]
  • a confusing but compelling multiverse thriller; Some viewers may need a second screening or more to work out what the hell is actually going on.. Nevertheless, this pulpy multiverse brain-teaser is reasonably compelling to watch
    3 of 5 by Leslie Felperin [The Guardian ]
  • "Flashback" remains it's own unique, and slightly niche, perplexing puzzle; Dylan O'Brien is compelling to watch as Fred, once again proving himself to be one of the most consistent actors working at the moment
    4 of 5 by Kat Hughes [The Hollywood News ]
  • "Flashback" mixes striking visual parallels with a head-scratching loopy narrative, striving and failing to derive emotional impact from its dreamy style; Still, it's an admirable stab at something challenging and imaginative that never pays off..
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
