review by
Mike Haberfelner

When small-fry private eye Dyson (Jamie Robson) is first approached by Dana Wltzlar (Seyan Sarvan) to investigate her scientist husband Hans's (Carsten Clemens) strange behaviour, he flatly turns her down, figuring the case lacking merit - much to the dismay of his partner Archer (Will Harrison-Wallace) who's more aware of their agency's precarious situation. But them, Dyson's flat is broken into, and a symbol's left behind that somehow ties it to Dana's case, so Dyson starts to investigate after all, and finds Hans's research somehow linked to his own condition that involves frequently waking up in unfamiliar places, and lapses of memory as well as of memory. But the closer Dyson's getting to the truth, the more of all people Archer tries to get him off the case, and eventually it turns out that Dyson might have some mental condition and is actually in treatment. But who's Dyson to trust, a possible scientific explanation that might get to core of everything, or those who "mean well" by leaving him in the dark? And why are the latter so adamant when it comes to making him drop the case?

 

Now truth to be told, Spin State is not the easiest film to follow, it is as confusing as it is intentionally vague on its science and eager to not tell the full story ... and all of this works entirely for the movie rather than against it, as this way it puts the audience right into the protagonist's mindset, which is really the core of the film's narration. And the film's slow-pace but atmospheric directorial approach that uses suspense scarcely but wisely, and some despite all the confusion very relatable performances make this a rather fascinating puzzle of a movie that might not be too easy to get into, but once one has made it through the gate, one's sure to enjoy.
