Midnight Special 
Sci-Fi Mystery Done Right
3/4 stars

'Midnight Special' is one of the most intriguing sci-fi films of the year. Writer/director Jeff Nichols brings us a tightly wound plot with interesting characters and a captivating mystery at it's core. It's paced slowly, with each new reveal laid out in natural progression. We are dropped into the middle of the situation, learning bits of information continuously. It feels both smart and adult, but also captures some of that childlike wonder present in the types of films that it emulates. The presence of opposing forces and a countdown clock gives a constant sense of urgency and danger. I like the ambiguity of the finale, but with the entire film essentially being build-up the final destination was not as satisfying as I'd hoped. Kind of a typical confusion for this type of film. However, the mysteries remain mysterious after the credits roll. Leaves you with something worth discussion. Very well made.
