Twitter Capsule: Dense, ambitious sci-fi led by Asian women on each side of camera. Places demands on viewers but pays complex rewards.

VOR:   Even when the storytelling feels a little halting or clogged, it's usually because the movie is chasing rich ideas about time, choice, beauty, race, legacy, gender, and money.
