er, wow! I didn't really know what to expect but despite seeing it several times (only got the video a couple of days ago) there are moments that you can't help but wonder what'll happen, even if you know.
Love the way that the guy obviously has his foot flat on the floor almost the entire duration, red lights or no red lights. Something I don't understand is the "surprise" ending - the film is called "it was a rendezvous/meeting" ..thought it was a rather good ending though.. I thought it was all pretty great to be honest. Yay!
