11:14 consists of five stories of about a dozen small town inhabitants whose lives intersect at… well 11:14 as the title suggests.

I knew very little of this movie…actually almost nothing of it other than what’s written at the back of the dvd cover…I don’t think it even got any theatrical release here. But I was looking for something short to watch and this one fits…it was only 86min long.

The story starts off with this guy talking on the phone while driving…pretty drunk too and as he comes out from under a bridge his car hits something. And so this is how the movie starts off with the other stories following, connecting the characters in some bizarre unimaginable way.

The movie is puzzle like.Often going forward and backwards…each story leaves you wanting more… to know what is actually going on here…how are they connected?…what other insane things are the characters going to do next?…hide a body, rob a convenience store, urinate from a window of movie car…Surely another disastrous consequence. But then none of the characters are truly that good…all very flawed and makes the worst choices…they had it coming.

The movie was an interesting drama/black comedy. Had a pretty good plot…easy to understand and piece together and good pacing too…I like it.

Keeping Mum (2005)

**May Contain Spoilers**
Two meanings to that title. Keeping quiet and keeping a mother safe…from well…the police. An entertaining dark comedy…Interesting how Rowan Atkinson plays a serious Vicar in a comedy when in most films he is the comedian. I actually like the younger Grace more than the older Grace.She seems much more calm, collected and sweet you can hardly believe she was capable of murder. Its weird how murder is portrayed here…happy and each deserving…but hey its a dark comedy…its the irony of it all. And the ending…never actually thought that would happen…since the daughter was so disapproving of her mother’s murderous ways…But I guess it was a pretty fitting ending for the movie. Like mother like daughter and keeping mum.
