makes traffic look like
10 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie was similar to Traffic in some ways and runs about the same length I really wanted it to end but only to find out what would happen I had no idea it was such a long movie while watching. It's way better than Traffic though!!!! Especially delectable is this whole sort of whimsical poetic aspect. . . that comes from one of the characters who is obsessed with movies.

Also another thing about it that was cool is it kind of wraps up relatively quickly given the scale and a lot of stuff happens in such rapid succession that it really takes you a while to sort out all this sh*t that happens, you spend the first 20 minutes after the movie's end sort of reevaluating who a number of these people were you've watched for 2.5 hours analyzing all this information that has just been conveyed very subtly in the various interlocking denouments (sic).

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
