So we waited in line for about 1.5 hours, and then saw roughly an equivalent amount of The Clock. (The irony of this was not lost on me.)
If you are a movie buff, The Clock provides loads of nostalgic fun. It is a 24 hour long film in which every minute of the day (synchronized with real time) is represented by several celluloid snippets where the time of day is somehow referenced. Sometimes it's overt: a character glances at their watch, a city clock in the background, a bedside clock radio. Other times the reference is oblique: a scene showing a London city bus with no time reference at all - until you notice the bus number is 1326, and the scene falls into the 1:26pm mark of The Clock. Sometimes it's so obscure you wonder if there's really a time reference at all or the director simply added the scene for continuity. The fun part is when you let go of the time thing altogether and just get lost enjoying the clips.
It's difficult to even imagine how many (tens of?) thousands of hours were spent finding these clips. Included are shots from Hollywood films new and old, foreign films, blockbusters, obscure art films and television shows. Also remarkable is the flow from scene to scene - characters on a train in a 50's black and white film check their watches and then a full-color scene from a more recent movie shows a train pulling into a station where the station clock shows the same time. Music from one scene often bleeds into the next, creating a surprisingly seamless experience.
Of course, the broader implications only start to sink in after you leave the theater, but those are for each individual to parse for themselves. Highly recommended, whether you see one hour of The Clock or hunker down for the full 24.
