When emotionally troubled stockbroker Rick suddenly re-proposes to his wife of 10 years at a cocktail party, only to be rejected and humiliated by her, his illusory world of comfort and security comes crashing down.

Under the cover of darkness of the New York City streets, the two take separate paths that will test both the fragility and resilience of their psyches. Written by Sujit R. Varma

One of the smartest examples of digital film making I have seen
1 March 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I can't recommend this film enough but I know not everyone likes digital films made at a low budget. The difference here is that you can see a great talent working out his style and you get a brilliant story with it.

The film follows a married couple over one night in New York in a kind of dogma meets After Hours kind of way. They fight and each character is revealed to have serious mental problems to go with their emotional problems.

This is clever because you first think the husband is crazy and then you think his wife is crazy and then you realize (eventually - not too soon) that we are all crazy if you look at us the right (or wrong) way.

What I loved about this story was the way it kept its sense of humour for the darkest emotional moments - not that thats the only time it is funny but that's where its biggest punches are and its right there to the end. Watching him washing his trousers made me nearly wet mine.

The whole circular nature of the film - every character tires to escape another character and runs right back into them again - delivers this theme of escape only coming from facing up to whatever we run from. Its a smart theme and delivers both emotion and a kind of thriller pace and the writer and director have great fun with it. A really surprising movie that I can't wait to see again basically.
