5 films to reboot your life


Have you ever wished you could put life into game mode and return to the previous save? Or even just hit Ctrl+Z on your keyboard to start your day over?

Here are five films offering a glimmer of what hitting reset would look like, from being forced to fix your issues before life reboots (Groundhog Day 1993), playing with time through experimental machinery (Primer 2004, Source Code 2011), enduring endless reboots to save the world (Edge of Tomorrow 2014), or just ending today better than yesterday (Happy Death Day 2017), here are some do-overs that go well with popcorn.

Anyone else stuck in a loop?

QAGOMA is the only Australian art gallery with purpose-built facilities dedicated to film and the moving image. The Australian Cinémathèque at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) provides an ongoing program of film and video that you’re unlikely to see elsewhere, offering a rich and diverse experience of the moving image, showcasing the work of influential filmmakers and international cinema, rare 35mm prints, recent restorations and silent films with live musical accompaniment on the Gallery’s Wurlitzer organ originally installed in Brisbane’s Regent Theatre in November 1929.
