Watch: 'The Decelerators' Are Here to Question What You Would Do if You Could Slow Down Time

Oct 23, 2013

If you enjoy the Shane Carruth brand of sci-fi — indie tales that float somewhere between experimental, overintellectualized, cryptic, stylish, audacious, pseudo philosophical and sometimes odd — then you'll probably appreciate Mark Slutsky's The Decelerators about a group of friends set out to stop time dead in its tracks. They build a machine that allows them to linger in the those special moments, until they get swept further and further away from the present.

It's a compelling idea that is simply executed with a moody atmosphere that sets a wistful tone. The low-budget work is just four minutes long, so you have nothing to lose by watching it, and it features nary a robot or spaceship in sight. It's been exciting to see more attention paid to a quieter, more unusual form of sci-fi — as in the case of Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin — and Slutsky's film reminds us of that influence.
