Shortly after taking a job processing obituaries, a young man becomes inadvertantly involved in the death of an old woman. Only when he reads about the accident in his own newspaper, days later, does he come to realize that he was a critical detail in the turn of events that led to her demise. After encountering another person who presumably goes missing, he is convinced that he has been wound into a plot for which he has been cast as an agent of Fate. Written by
"The Eternal Present" is the reason people seek out little-known independent films. It's visually interesting and the creepy, yet subtle soundtrack collides with every horror that the main character (Tim) encounters. I could not get Romero's "Martin" out of my mind for some reason, maybe because of him, or perhaps it was the black and white similarity. If you've ever woke up to less than pleasant sights, sounds and thoughts, you'll probably relate to the plight of this poor sap. The acting from most of the other characters is ordinary at best, however the film is not. Be sure to listen to the commentary to hear what the heck the film maker was trying to accomplish. I can't wait to see his next offering.
