The movie just shows us the never-ending loop in which Jess is stuck seemingly forever. What actually happened that left her in this loop is never shown. Only subtle hints are given throughout the movie. There is no starting point to the loop. That just seems so to the viewer. I would say that the instant she has the car crash with her son was the starting ...

I thought it might help to explain just the mechanics of the events on board the Aeolus a bit to clear up what's happening. I am loosely following this video analysis by Peng Yang, though I think I simplified the explanation a bit. The two key aspects of the main plot are these: First off, there are two separate groups of people arriving on the ship. I call ...

From my view point, Jess is being punished just as the Gods punished the person related to the boats name with the infinite task of moving the rock to see it fall back to its starting point. I feel that the actions taken to save her son are the cause of this punishment. When Jess sees the car crash, the taxi driver comes along, telling her that there is no ...

The only thing possible to break out from the same-things-happening time loop is the "knowledge" of the previous loop, so that she can change them. I think she loses it all while she falls asleep on the boat, waking up with champagne and all. All time bending movies have their inconsistencies somewhere. They're good for entertainment purpose only, and ...

What I think is that the "good Jess" is the only surviving Jess, at both the beginning, the "exactly the same" Jess mentioned that her kid was in school, which means, her son died. Therefore, at the first part of the movie (before the storm), there are actually two Jesses, one who was killed, and the one who killed. Therefore, the one who go on board at both ...

Let me add more to the answers. Reference : Triangle TimeLoop or DeathLoop explained. Aeolus is the name of the liner. In mythology, Sisyphus, the son of Aeolus, breaks a promise he makes to death. As a result he is punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. Ring a ...

I agree that we enter the loop during its Nth playthrough. However, I do not think we are following the same Jess all the way through -- there is a moment when the film seems to judder and jump back several frames -- I think this represents several more playthroughs of the exact same moment thus we have jumped forward 2 or 3 Jess'. Remember, these are not ...

It is not explicitly said in the movies, but judging from the situation and her body language, it looks like she is trying to distract the masked killer. More specifically, the point seems to be to make him think she went the opposite way. Jess is definitely not in her right mind for most of the movie, so it is not unbelievable that she would do that right ...

I think you missed a very critical part of the story. Reff: Triangle Movie Explained Jess is dead when she reaches the liner in the middle of the ocean. This part of the movie is all about the punishment she is receiving because she breaks her promise with death (the taxi driver). She's made to go through a never ending loop of pain till she accepts her ...

He may have given up, or might be a mythological figure from the underworld. It's possible that the driver assumed she was going to go up to the boat, talk to people, then come back. So far, we have no indication that she told him she was going on a cruise. Upon seeing her board the boat, or after waiting for a long time, he may have given up on it and ...

That's a good question, and possibly a detail the writer chose to omit as it would have caused too much suspicion. On the other hand, many of the details were slightly different during the loop. That is to say, not everything happened exactly the same, but the outcomes were the same. It's also possible that other drivers had been called away, or a ...

This movie shows the endless looping, which started when she killed Tommy and herself in a car accident. Here I am using numbers to denote the revolution. first revolution In the first revolution, Jess-1 sees the message Go to Theater. second revolution In the second revolution, Jess-2 recognizes the hallway and the on her way to the dining room, she ...

Not the way I remember it. The way I see it Jess is in a kind of purgatory, as the end of the movie shows her as an abusive mother. She's trapped in the time loop, but seems to be gradually changing things. Perhaps when she has righted all her wrongs she can be free?
