Why the lack of attention?
12 March 2010 | by (Fresno, California) – See all my reviews

This movie takes some concentration and mental work to keep up with all the story lines. It jumps from conversation to conversation in a Manhattan bar. It cycles back to all of them, so that each story continues. I didn't count how many story lines there were, but there may have been one too many or so. All I can say is that each story is intensely interesting. Call me a sucker for excellent writing because I am. Perhaps people resent a nontraditional structure or having to exercise their minds to keep up with a fast paced multiple plot. To me, it's like waking up to being alive. This is one of those films you want to see ten times because you don't want to miss a single nuance. Those who don't want to have their mind challenged by a film, there is no shortage of things to watch. Films like this one are rare and precious.
