    The Most Underrated Sci-Fi Movies Of 2023

    “It’s not that simple.” This line echoes throughout the genre-bending blend of sci-fi, dramedy, and teen coming-of-age, and the sentiment equally applicable to the film’s narrative devices and its characters. The story begins innocently enough… until a sports car inexplicably falls from the sky and crashes upside-down on a suburban street.

    The sole witness, Cameron (Jim Gaffigan), is disbelieved by his family. His own confusion intensifies when the unharmed driver of the car appears and takes over as host of his little-watched kids’ science show. This event marks another occurrence in his full-blown mid-life crisis. With his marriage on the brink, he’s overwhelmed by regret for missed opportunities, while his practical wife, Erin (Rhea Seehorn), is frustrated by unfulfilled desires to do something “fantastic” in her life. Meanwhile, their teen daughter Nora (Katelyn Nacon)  becomes involved with son of the man who took Cameron’s show. When another object, a piece of space junk, inexplicably falls from the sky into his backyard, it becomes the catalyst for Cameron to pursue his youthful dream of becoming an astronaut. Determined to achieve the impossible, he sets out to build a rocket from the wreckage. Much of what happens doesn’t make sense… until it does.     

    While it might be tempting to treat this as a mere puzzle box, “It’s not that simple” once again prevails. What happens is not as important as why it happens. Overall, “Linoleum” is a visually stunning and thought-provoking experience, featuring dreamlike visuals, aesthetics, and introspective exploration of identity and family.
