Review: Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes (Fantastic Fest 2021)


Title: Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes
MPAA Rating: Not Rated
Director: Junta Yamaguchi
Starring: Kazunari Tosa, Riko Fujitani, Gôta Ishida
Runtime: 1 hr 10 mins

What It Is: A cafe owner discovers that for some strange reason the computer in his apartment displays the future. I mean only two minutes into the future but the future nonetheless. He goes downstairs, back to his cafe to show his friends/colleagues they soon realize that there may be a way to make that two minutes slightly longer. They’re going to learn there’s a true danger to knowing the future and that said future cannot be changed.

What We Think: This is an excellent film. The actors are all likable and that’s important in a film like this. This is funny and the way things evolve from scene to scene really works so well. You’re wondering the entire time what’s going to happen to our time traveling friends. It’s hard to talk about his movie without totally spoiling it. I do want to mention that it is one continuous shot and the feat is an impressive one. Especially when you consider they were using a cellphone for their camera. This is quite an experience. Unlike anything you’re likely to see this or any other year.

Our Grade: A, This is simply put one of my favorite films of the year and one of the years best. It’s also one of 2021’s most unique viewing experiences. I’m very happy to tell you all that you can and should check this out immediately. Maybe buy twos one because it’ll take multiple watches for you to truly enjoy all the wild and wacky stuff that’s going down in this one. I’m really excited to see what this director does next. His fortitude with decisions here is something worth admiring. Check this one out. DO IT!
