Live every day like it's your last, because the next Chicxulub could hit...

I saw this film at the Tribeca Film Festival a while back and was
absolutely floored by it. The energy and visceral quality the filmmaker
brought to screen was breathtaking. The director took a risk making the
choice to shoot 2.35 hand-held, and it absolutely pays off.
The film is based on a short story by T.C. Boyle. It juxtaposes a
meteor event that happened 65 million years ago to a father and mother
getting a call that their daughter has been in a car accident.
After seeing the film I looked it up and read it. I have to say this is
one of the best adaptations I have ever seen of a short story into a
short film. A lot of the devastating brush strokes T.C. Boyle is so
deft at creating are brought out beautifully in this film.
I wish it was online somewhere, I'd love to see it again.
The performances are incredible too.
