4. Predestination
Time travel is regularly a subject of blockbuster faire – but from a real science-fiction heavy perspective, it’s always great to see a film that both fully grasps the complexities of the narrative device and applies them in smart and interesting ways. Enter Michael and Peter Spierig's Predestination - a film that got an American release last January, but you're probably only reading about for the first time right here. And while the movie went under the radar when it came out, it’s definitely one well-worth searching out.

Based on the Robert A. Heinlein short story "All You Zombies," the movie sports an engaging non-linear narrative full of fascinating turns and great ideas. Ethan Hawke is fantastic as a time traveling agent working to stop a terrorist in 1970 New York, but it's really Australian actress Sarah Snook who steals the show (and will hopefully soon get some more high profile work). As far as great 20th century time travel movies go, it’s in the same conversation as Shane Carruth’s Primer.
