Day Night Day Night (Drama 2006)

This was a silent indie film that I saw a trailer for over a year ago. It essentially followed around a girl who was preparing to be a suicide bomber in New York. It took a very calm, analytical approach to the factor of time, as the main female actor went through the hoops to get to her final destination.

The feel of the movie was much like United 93. There was minimal talking and a lot of drawn-out, observational scenes. From the audience's point of view, you got to feel what emotional anxieties existed for the girl at different parts of the film.

It was a different type of movie, but not necessarily good or bad. Depending on one's point of view, it could go both ways. I personally thought it was O.K., but there was no Eureka at the end of the tunnel.
