Unwrapping Time
by Richard Jack Smith

At face value, I should dislike Triangle because the story spirals into a tease, yet clues are left behind. These breadcrumbs define the heart of a film performance as different versions end up conjoined.

Christopher Smith’s film messes with your ability to understand a straight line. Such complexity arises from the various moods which Jess (Melissa George) reveals to her co-conspirators. We are the vessel that must bear her right of way. Because she’s experiencing things for the first time as well as many, all of them are sides to her personality. Therefore, Smith’s screenplay dares you to assume empathy.

Approaching Triangle from only one side ignores the four dimensions this production has to offer. It’s a kinetic experience that kept me hooked and wanting to know more. Dare I say Hollywood should learn from this?

Then again, Triangle raises some important questions regarding the collective. Why are films so predictable? We need a challenge. Not just viewers but filmmakers.

Thank you Mr. Smith for making quantum leaps. (Capsule review)

(Released by Icon Film Distribution/First Look International and rated "R" for violence and language.)
