11 Minutes (Poland)

Stuff happens to over a dozen characters during 11 minutes with devastating effect – which actually makes the film feels more exciting that it is. A challenge to make the film as much as it is to watch it – especially at the beginning trying to keep up with all the introductions and figuring out how they connect. (Hint: don’t bother.) For something so complex and intertwined, the middle of the film plods and drags even though you are bombarded with details (Hint again: not all of them are relevant.) Ultimately, it is the pay-off in the final minutes that’ll decide how you feel about it. While some will find it powerful and affecting, I find it less than the sum of its parts. So, shit happens, right?
