Finally, a movie that breaks the rules of conventional filmmaking
5 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

I had the great privilege of watching the film with Max Makowski and asking him questions afterward. The film is a stroke of genius. Sure, there were a few continuity errors and other glitches which Mr. Makowski was quick to point out, but the arrangement of the events was absolutely like no other. Some compare it to Pulp Fiction, but there's no way the strategic non-linear order of Quentin Tarantino's film even comes close to The Pigeon Egg Strategy. Makowski said he thinks of his film like a ride at the amusement park; you go on a tour of everything and then come back to where you started. The most amazing scene was near the end, when two drunken men are walking from a bar to their car. Makowski uses a cross-fade effect that defines the feeling of drunkenness more than being drunk. You have to see it to believe it. I wanted to watch the film at least five more times to completely understand the story (that's how complicated the sequence of events is), but Mr. Makowski had to catch the bus. Supposedly he will release Pigeon Egg Strategy to cable television - I can hardly wait to see it again.
