Cool Little Doodle from Duncan Jones Explains 'Source Code' Timeline
Duncan Jones' sophomore effort Source Code further proved what he set out to say with his first effort, Moon; that smart and sci-fi can co-exist! And Source Code fit the same bill to the point that the multiple universes and alternate realities were enough to make even Doc Brown's head spin! Was it time travel or was it time reassignment as Jeffrey Wright's character Dr. Rutledge (inventor of the time manipulating technology) articulates to Jake Gyllenhaal's Captain Colter Stevens (the mouse in the wheel if you will)? Well, a fun little doodle by Jones himself attempts to clear things up for us a bit. See if you can figure it out!
Here's the Source Code doodle which Duncan Jones shared via Twitter (click to enlarge):
Like I said, you thought the Doc's chalkboard explanation was hard to follow! It looks like something I would have drawn on a college math exam to make it look like I knew how to do the work in an attempt to get at least partial credit. I can't even begin to put into words my own assessment of this thing (which is what the comment fields below are for, so get to debating) but I can say this; I like how the always fan-friendly director has taken it upon himself to create his own info graphic before someone else beat him to it. And color coded too! In reality, Jones states on his Twitter "been rummaging paperwork from SC & found doodle I did for buddy during production." Still, very cool that he decided to share it with the fans. Thoughts?
