Three timelines converge in a nonlinear narrative that knots itself up and doesn't quite come undone in a moving exploration of loss, grief, and the role of a biracial Asian person in an infectiously white society. Simultaneously, and also at several different points in time, you are introduced to an 80s noir detective show with its torn-leather-jacket-wearing star, Raider, and an enigmatic tech company promising a battery that solves the energy crisis. It's also about queerness, the few days before Christmas, and cereal milk. I loved Flux, and I will be madly talking in circles about it for a very, very long time.
