Seeing & Believing goes on an expedition into the dark, weird, and dreamlike this week. First, Wade and Kevin journey into the heart of “the Shimmer” with their review of Alex Garland’s latest sci-fi mind-trip, Annihilation. Then they turn to consider Abbas Kiarostami’s final film, the documentary 24 Frames. It may not be sci-fi, but it’s definitely a mind-trip, and the guys try to unpack the ideas binding together the twenty-four vignettes that make up the film.

Music interlude by Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow, “Lighthouse Chamber,” from the Annihilation official soundtrack.
