Great film - left a strong impression...
16 September 2009 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw One Minute to Nine at Locarno Film Festival in 2007 and it has not left my mind since. There are few documentary films that leave an impression on me, mainly because the subject matter always seems to be marred by outdated and formulaic methods (i.e. talking heads and unnecessary captions). This was not the case with One Minute to Nine. Not only is One Minute to Nine incredibly moving, but it is also innovative in its style. The full story of Wendy's struggle to overcome the violence in her marriage is revealed to the audience progressively and allows the viewer to understand Wendy's story naturally almost as if Davis is granting the trust necessary to reveal such a horrific story. It is the type of film that leaves you feeling so aware and united with Wendy that it would be impossible to forget.

Naturally questions are raised throughout the entire film. In my opinion, trying to answer all of these questions would take away from the relationship that the viewer has built with Wendy in her last five days before going to prison. Instead, these questions are left unanswered and seem to parallel Wendy's own inability to comprehend the injustice she has faced. This is not a documentary that attempts to resolve Wendy's struggle, but to bring it to light. By not explicitly addressing the questions raised throughout the film, I feel Davis is also allowing the audience to remain frustrated by domestic violence rather than placate them with possible explanations or solutions. In this film, the unexplained resonates strongest.
