“What Yamaguchi has created here is pure magic”
Heather Wixson / Daily Dead

“Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes is the Year’s Most Ingeniously Constructed Film. Seventy minutes of utter brilliance.”
Rob Hunter / Film School Rejects

“Undoubtedly the work of a filmmaker you’ll immediately want to see more from”
Nick Allen / RogerEbert.com

”An incredible piece of filmmaking”
Rachel Ho / That Shelf

“Kato lives above the cafe that he runs along with his friend Aya – everything is normal until one day when finishing for the day, he discovers that his TV is linked to the set in the cafe but on a two-minute delay when he begins to have a conversation with himself. After getting his friends Komiya, Ozawa and Tanabe involved with this revelation, things start to go wrong as they soon find out that maybe knowing the future isn’t as good as it can be.

From the outset, the most impressive aspect of this film, which comes in at a short runtime of 70 minutes, is that it is crafted to appear as one single take meaning that once the story has you hooked, there is nothing to take you away from the hilarious comedy and mind-bending sci-fi goodness that writer Makoto Ueda has created. —

From start to finish, Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes is a wonderfully crafted sci-fi comedy that is surely going to go down as an important film for aspiring filmmakers and truly proves that if you have an idea and a camera, anything is possible.” – James Perkins / Starburst
