Near the end of the credits there is a message from the director which mirrors Billy Byrne's obsession with time: "The original director's cut of this motion picture is exactly 163989 frames, 6832.875 seconds, 113.88125 minutes, 1.8980208 hours in duration (sans logos.) If this version is a different length, or if this message is missing, you may not have viewed the original director's cut. For further information, contact: www.stephennorrington.com See more »
It's late, it's extremely humid, every breath is like a drink of city soaked in smog water. I pop the DVD into my player and was transported to a late feast of clever visual effects, smart script lines, and a wicked soundtrack. So wicked that I immediately started to hunt the internet for it.
I was impressed by the very fine acting of Max Beesley, very convincing character transformations throughout the film. Not since discovering Christian Bale did I feel like wanting to see more films from someone.
Even though this movie centered around London's Underground, I felt like this could've been any city...reminding me of it's inhabitants running about half-asleep, forgetting (ignorance is bliss) about existence and valuing life.
The movie made me feel guilty for feeling guilty about wanting to indulge and live a little in life.
I recommend this movie anyone who likes movies that give you that feeling of "there's a message here for me".
