Fantasia 2020 – MINOR PREMISE Movie Review

Minor Premise is the most scientifically accurate film, well at least that was part so I can get in there oh gosh why Keep in mind that I never claimed to be a scientist. I do have a penchant for debunking scientific elements in film.

They say that Stanley Kubrick believed that every set piece from the grandiose hotel lobbies all the way down to where paintings were hung.

Minor Premise was filmed with such care and attention to detail that it’s mind blowing. It had to have been a challenge to remember blocking for many of the sequences.

The feature directing debut from Eric Schultz stars Sathya Sridharan, Paton Ashbrook, and Dana Ashbrook.
Schultz wrote the film with Justin Moretto and Thomas Torrey. Be in the lookout for great things from this team.

Listen to my audio review on Anchor.fm.

Synopsis

Attempting to surpass his father’s legacy and pressured by an old colleague (Dana Ashbrook of Twin Peaks), a reclusive neuroscientist becomes entangled in his own risky experiment. Ethan (Sathya Sridharan) has now locked himself in his home with his ex-girlfriend Allie (Paton Ashbrook) and the two navigate trauma, ambition, and missteps of the past. Diving headfirst into the uncharted equations of the brain, they realize that there is more at stake than just their relationship or Ethan’s reputation. With time quickly running out, he is forced to face off against the darker sides of himself while frantically attempting to solve an enigma that lies within his subconscious.
