In the bleak world of the near- future, a prisoner is sent back in time to the 1990s to discover the source of a plague that killed billions and forced society to move underground. Plays with present/past/future tense in ways both clever and confusing; at the very least, it's the kind of movie that leaves you with plenty to talk about after-ward. Inspired by Chris Marker's 1962 short film. LA JETEE.
