Would you follow your lover to a different dimension?

Entangled, one of the highlights from the Toronto International Film Festival's Short Cuts program, is an eerie, engrossing story that follows what happens when a scientist decides to conduct a quantum experiment on himself.

Like Shane Carruth's Primer, Entangled takes a sci-fi concept and grounds it in realism. The results are spellbinding and sad.

My only complaint is that the ending seems at odds with the scientific concept of entanglement. Then again, I am an English major and my knowledge of entanglement is...scant.

I'd like to see this concept treated to a full-length film version with more elaboration on how the experiment works and what comes after de-tangling.

Haven't watched it yet. Just came to answer the leading question, "Would you follow your lover to a different dimension?" First, what lover? Second, if this is a hypothetical lover, then no, because love sucks and is nothing but pain so fuck her, whoever she is.
