Chris Olson, UK Film Review
"Intense and skillfully assembled, short film Abyss from filmmaker V. R. Rao is a remarkable and dramatic spin on the "gifted" genre. Think a condensed Chronicle with a stronger romantic thread and you are somewhere in the right arena.
Jonah Robinson narrates and plays the central character, an artist struggling to find work. Sitting outside a coffee shop a little boy (Maximilien Kafel) throws something at him which takes him back to a different time and space, and he discovers he has the ability to move objects with his mind. Will this help him find a job or make any headway with Jane (Lily Paige), the girl he likes? Unlikely if he can't learn to control his powers and get a grip on his ever changing reality. "
