A quarter of the way into this indie science-fiction movie, I thought I was seeing the new Moon. Halfway through, I thought I was seeing the new Ex Machina. Three-fourths of the way in, I thought I was seeing something wild and original. Then the end hit, and I was so frustrated at the loss of all that potential. The upside: this film is gorgeous, and really well directed and designed. The downside: that ending though. Full review for Polygon here.
