It's a indie sci-fi/mystery. The idea that a comet would cause what happens to happen in the movie is pretty lame but once you get beyond that it pulls you in. For about the 1st third of the movie you don't know if it's aliens, time travel, ghosts, etc...

Great suggestion, my friend!

I've got my ideas, but the 1st time I watched it was more to simply take in the story. Like you, I'll definitely be watching it a few more times with a more critical eye.

Loved the simplicity of the ability to make this and yet truly create an engaging mindbender!

My only frustration lies in wanting to see what happens after the call from "her"!

Feel free to link any analysis or breakdown about it. I'll definitely be interested and recommending this around to friends and family.

Even at 2 minutes, you gotta fight the urge to inflict pain to distract you from the epic fail you're watching.

Sounds like fantasy just isn't your bag. Those are great movies.

The kids and I recently watched all of them over the course of a few nights as a farewell to summer and nights without a bedtime. We were watching the extended editions... holy COW... they are long. It adds like an hour to RotK. I was all about letting them stay up late, but they were up until like 11:00pm, and we were starting the movies at around 7.

Watched Presumed Innocent with Harrison Ford last night. Fucking awesome flick. Very underrated Ford performance.

A lot of great info in here but will completely ruin the film for anyone that hasn't watched it yet.
Spoiler!


I've been waiting for someone else to watch it. It's one of those you want to discuss with someone as soon as it's over...

Some spoilers

Unrelated other than it just seems I group them together based on the era of release and type of movie, but have you seen Jagged Edge or A Dry White Season ? If not, do give them a viewing.

On a sidenote, I know pretty well and used to work with the attorney that wrote Presumed Innocent . Pretty cool guy.

Excellent. I will check it out.

One of my most proud reading moments was when I figured out the twist in Presumed Innocent about 1/3 of the way through the book. If you've read it, it was when Ford's character broke down looking at the drinking glasses at his home.

Did you ever read Turow's '1-L?'

Also, if I may ask, in what stead you worked with him. I know he's been involved in The Innocence Project, or some similar anti-death penalty organization of late.

Large case involving insurance fraud - on the part of the insurers not the policy holders and a handful of other stuff back in my days at Sonnenschein - probably circa 2008. He was given carte blanche, even with all the smoking prohibitions at work he was able to in his office as he saw fit. His office was awesome- decked out in smokey leather it was like a trophy room meets a social club parlor meets a cigar room with just a splash of English refinement.

Ya, I'm familiar with 1L, but it was never a book that grabbed me. Maybe it's the layman's effect?

Spike has moved onto the 'can do no wrong' ladder for me, along with Coens, Scorsese, and Tarantino. Adaptation is among my top 5 ALL TIME movie experiences, of all things redeems Nic Cage!! That's like 40 on the John Travolta 1-10 Pulp Fiction redemption scale. Being John Malkovich is revelatory. Synechdoche, Martha Focker!!
