Mesmerising science fiction fable that pushes the concept of cinematic time travel into a whole new dimension. Its somnambulant teenage protagonist seems to slip into a parallel universe, where a giant demonic rabbit called Frank proclaims that the world will end - in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. This genre-bending film is not only an intriguing meditation on time travel and a deeply disturbing horror movie, it is also a John Hughes-style coming-of-age movie and a black comic satire on Reaganite greed, individualism and Christian fundamentalism.
