Here is my list of favorite movies which story consists on a time loop:
- Groundhog Day: The original movie that was so successful it turn its title into a new concept.
- Source Code
- Edge of Tomorrow
- Russian Doll
Since I’m here, I just finished Russian Doll, so here are my top favorite thing from the movie:
- Great characters. Specially the female protagonist who is a somewhat of a “cunt” (her best friend’s words), but more importantly a woman comfortable with herself, who is not playing the role in life she chose for herself. Independent, saucy, cynic, dark, rude… Think Edina Monsoon, and replace her superficiality with existentialism.
- Great visuals. From the vaginal-black-hole-ish bathroom where the movie restarts every few minutes, to the protagonists’ looks, etc, etc.
- Great mind-bending idea. I love mind-bends.
