What a sublime movie! Finally time has caught up with this movie!

What a sublime movie! Finally time has caught up with this movie!

The comments by the person who saw "12" in a theater had clearly more to do with his state of mind than with the movie, and IF he JUST had sat through to the END and seen the coming together of all the PARTS!

As good as ALTMAN's script of Carver's SHORT CUTS but in the metaphysical mixed with the real of LA, and not just the real LA shown in SHORT CUTS, which happens to be my favorite movie about LA, a city which I love.

Sure some fine tuning could be made like in the time the text is allowed to stay on the screen, which was too short to be possible to read in its entirety for the uninitiated, but that is the only real problem, as it is such an integral part of the movie in the beginning and NEEDS to be understood by the viewer.

Bravo, dAn
