Actually I was going to thank you for being late. Or otherwise I couldn't have the chance to talk to the girl. Did you see her?

She just left. She was beautiful. I've never seen such a beautiful woman... for, I mean, for a German woman.

This movie is like a moving dartboard. details flash before you and as you aim your attention on a particular target, it quickly goes out of reach.
I just rented this flick among 6 others (saw Wall Street before this one, really good movie) simply because Mira Sorvino is a hottie and the premise of the film (guy gets 12 hours to do whatever he wants) sounded intriguing.
It turned out to be something a hell of a lot different.
From the opening credits I was impressed with the set-design, the actor and the way it was being filmed. Fantastic opening scene gave me the feeling I was going to watch something really unique. And I did.
Unfortunately, I cant quite find the words to describe what I saw. It seemed almost like an improvisation. Characters that didnt quite seem to fit in the story, conversations that didnt seem to hold any relevance, plot-twists that were inconceivable. This isnt your typical hollywood film.
Again, I was taken aback by the style of the movie, and I recommend this for those seeking something "different" to comment on along with their friends. Just like "Lost Highway" had an important message locked somewhere in it's tangled skein.
Oh well. That pretty much sums up my opinion of the movie, sorry I couldn't have done a better job. peace out.
