Storyline

A voice says, "There are 1,000,000 moments in your neighborhood; each has a fragile presence which fades almost as it forms." Ten such moments are dramatized, from a chubby man exercising and realizing that "sex" and "thing" go together to an ill, bored child discovering that most pieces of paper fit on top of a Scotties box. Along the way, a child races time, a matron thinks she hears a woodpecker, an unfaithful gay man wonders why his eyes can't focus on two depths simultaneously, Angela thinks about her uncle's pet pig as she eats pork, beer-drinking Ed recalls his school football days and vows to get back in shape, and a bachelor remembers his mother.

cinematic cinema
27 December 2001 | by (san francisco) – See all my reviews

While I really admire this film, a very lovely collection of moments which describe human idiosyncracy, I must say that it is best viewed in a theater. Some films have humor that is so sophisticated, so esoteric, that it demands projection at 24 frames per second, and anything less than the silver screen does not do it justice. Take "Stranger Than Paradise". The editing technique is what makes the film so funny and wry. The full of effect of the technique just doesn't fly on a television screen; t.v. screens just aren't cinematic. Passionless Moments is wonderful, but buyer beware: only purchase the film if you have access to a theater.
