I Origins begins when graduate student, Ian Gray, is researching the evolution of human eyes with Karen and Kenny, in order to prove that eyes have evolved instead of "appeared" as creationists claim. His fascination with eyes takes him into areas that have profound personal and cultural consequences.Written by

Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair of eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

Mike Cahill creates another low budget low key fantasy film, using some of the same actors as in Another Earth, and again he succeeds in producing something intriguing. I watched Another Earth and I really liked it, because it didn't just publish an idea, but it built and grew its characters, reaching the underwhelming, but thought provoking ending. I liked I Origins for the same reasons, but truth be said, it's just not as good. If you watched this film and liked it, you will love Another Earth.
The story is difficult to explain without spoiling the basic plot. Let's just say it is a journey of discovery for the main character. The film starts with a really slow pace and much of what happens in the first half is just character exposition, rather than development. That may put some people off. However it is important to understand all characters to get the film, and they are all rather interesting and original, not tired clichés. I liked that.
So basically you get a well done, well acted movie, involving interesting characters in an intriguing story. What else do you need? With a cast like Michael Pitt and Brit Marling, it feels like the indie film that it is, but I thought it was clearly worth watching. Some scenes could have been removed to make the movie last less than the full two hours, but they do develop the characters and pull the viewer into their story a little.
