Imagine a world where, just by yanking a fingernail out and running it through a machine alongside your partner’s, you can find out if you’re truly in love. That’s the bizarre premise of this heady sci-fi drama starring Jessie Buckley and Riz Ahmed, which feels designed solely to be one of those all-too-common thought-provoking artsy bits of ‘cinema’. Yes, Buckley and Ahmed are both fantastic, capable of injecting all kinds of life and emotion into anything they touch, but even their combined talents aren’t enough to overcome the pretentiousness and boredom of this slog.

1.5/5 stars
