Time Out says

Thinking inside the box: in an American garage, two jargon-jawing techies are working away on something mysterious and potentially revolutionary. It’s best to go into this brain-bending debut without knowing much more, so we’ll just tell you that Carruth, a former engineer with little prior filmmaking experience, shot this audacious time-travel mindfucker on Super 16 for some $7,000, and the thrilling, rough-hewn result provokes extreme love-it-or-hate-it reactions – it’s temporally gnarled, ethically engaged, and altogether batty, and it amply rewards patience, engagement, and repeat viewings.
