I just saw this at the Indie Festival in San Francisco. No one else may ever get to see this one, but you should, so I'll make some comments.
The premise is very intriguing. A murder happens. The action occupies 10 minutes -- no more, no less, and that's what we see. Then we see a replay of those 10 minutes, and the actions of people associated with the murder, from their point of view.
This is a very clever premise, and the director pulls it off OK. As you might imagine, the acting is uneven; some very good, some really mediocre. The fellow who plays the hit-man is incredibly smooth, and his boss, Mr. Duke, also seems to be a more experienced actor. The rest of them are questionable. Larry (the unhappy bloke who is the hittee) is lame. Parts of the script are wooden. We also never get to see the story of the bank robber, which had the most potential in the whole setup. The gay characters are more of a plot trick than real people.
But on the whole, entertaining, with enough plot twists to make for an interesting time. I just wish they had done more with the script.
