Before we start, let’s make something clear – in this post we will not criticize, or review, or rate Mute, the most recent Netflix Original Film. We will take care of that later. For now – and considering the length of the film (126 minutes) and its convoluted plot – we will try to put together all the pieces that british director Duncan Jones (Warcraft, 2016) left for us in this movie, so we can finally see the big picture.
Without further ado, let’s start analyze and explain the so-called Blade Runner rip-off titled Mute.

Directed by Oren Uziel, Shimmer Lake is one of the new additions in Netflix this June, with some degree of success among the viewers thanks to its kind of unusual way to tell the story.
Shimmer Lake relates the series of events that takes place after a bank robbery in a small town in northern USA. The funny thing is that these facts are presented on the screen in a reversed chronological order. The film begins on Friday, the moves to Thursday, then Wednesday and finally we are told what happened on Tuesday, the day of the robbery.
