i’m not one to normally point out a lot of questions about the plot inconsistencies or logic gaps raised by the idea of picture, but this one certainly had some things that made me wonder. the key with this kind of thing, at least with me, is to either keep it vague enough that i don’t ask a lot of questions or to answer all the questions throughout the film.
timberlake has a niche in film and this isn’t it. he just can’t pull off the character who is supposed to be of great morality and strength. instead timberlake plays him flippantly because that’s timberlake’s acting card. this role needed paul newman or steve mcqueen, someone with quiet strength. ultimately it’s an interesting idea that gets you thinking about how society would be if time were currency. how should we function, how would we keep order, etc? but the film itself wasn’t great.Watched in theater
