Time Travel Today With Dimensions: A Line, A Loop, A Tangle Of Threads

Posted by on October 18, 2013

Do you believe time travel is possible? How about the idea that we live in only one of an infinite number of universes?

Described as a cross between H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine and A Beautiful Mind, Dimensions is a mind-bending independent film that takes viewers on a journey back to 1920s England, as one man attempts to make time travel a reality.


“I don’t believe that time is a straight line from point A to point B – time is a line, a loop, a tangle of threads, a sculpture of dazzling complexity.”

But this is more than just a story about time travel.

According to the film’s director Sloane U’Ren, “…what is sci-fi today becomes reality tomorrow, and it is that quest for knowledge and the price you must pay that is at the heart of the film. I like to say that Dimensions isn’t about time travel…it is about the desire to time travel.”


As of today, Dimensions is available through a variety of avenues, mostly in the U.K. You can view the full list here. For those of us in the U.S., DVD and iTunes releases are scheduled for later this year.

You may also be interested in the companion blog to Dimensions called Project Chronos, which asks the singular question: “Has the British government secretly spent millions researching time travel since the 1930s?” If you enjoy reading the weird time travel stories you’ve seen here at Stranger Dimensions, it’s definitely worth a look.

I’ll do a longer review once I’ve had a chance to see it, but from what I’ve heard (and from what I’ve seen in the trailers), Dimensions certainly looks like an intriguing ride.
