Annular Eclipse is an ambitious film. It's a small-scale genre effort, so don't expect anything too epic or blockbuster-worthy. Instead, the limited budget went to some functional CG and eye-popping cinematography to create an alluring future. The plot is quite conceptual and somewhat obfuscated to strengthen the mystery aspects of the film, but if you pay attention it shouldn't be too hard to follow. The performances are solid, there are many memorable moments and the build-up towards the conclusion was extremely effective. A neat little gem.
