The Tangle: Review

The Tangle

Laurel (Jessica Graham) and Edward (Christopher Soren Kelly) are a married couple living in a world run by an artificial intelligence known as The Tangle. The Tangle runs every aspect of human life and is able to connect everyone from anywhere at any time and people have accepted this new life, even going as far as to have hard drives installed in their brains so that they can stay connected.

Everything seems fine under the control of The Tangle and what with The Tangle’s predictive abilities, crime is at an all time low. Laurel and Edward are only two of a select few who have opted out of being under The Tangle though, monitoring human life without being subject to its ever-vigilant watch.

So, when Carter (Joshua Bitton) gets caught up in a murder, they disconnect him from The Tangle and bring him in for interrogation. If only it were that easy.



The Tangle is a sci-fi noir co-starring, written and directed by Christopher Soren Kelly in his feature debut. Boasting connections in its theme and style to films such as Blade Runner and Minority Report, due to its smaller budget and lack of action sequences The Tangle comes across more like Andrew Niccol’s Gattaca. However, that’s still a very worthy comparison.

As the story unfolds, the audience is not lead in with any easy exposition as it takes them along the story and introduces the ideas of the world seamlessly. The Tangle creates a world that’s not all that unlikely considering the world we live in now and the way we may be heading.

Like Minority Report it may even show us a not-too-distant future and for those conspiracy theorists we may already be there in part. Although, The Tangle’s focus is a noir murder mystery and that’s where it stays for the most part. However, it simultaneously talks about the wider world, making the audience think of where we could be.

Not a film to sit down to watch if you’re not keen on paying attention to the details, but for those who do then they will be rewarded.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
