A blog dealing with either the joy of cinema or the agony of cinema--nothing in between.

The title refers to the time of a car crash and is also the jumping off point for five different stories all revolving around that event. The plot containing interlocking stories, or hyperlink movie is an idea that once seemed fresh and original and here seems trite and is used as an excuse to film a movie that may be unfilmable if told in a standard fashion. Though the style in which it is filmed does generate interest, the characters are bland as is the screenplay, and the movie seems more like a cinematic experiment devised by a film student rather than an engaging full-length motion picture.
