Product Description

11:14 (DVD) (WS)

In Middletown, at 11:14 PM, two cars accidents happen at the same time, affecting the lives of five different groups of people. A drunken driver hits a man in a lonely road near a bridge; three young men hits a woman with a van, one of the passenger has a severed penis while another man on the road shoots them; a young man robs a convenience store, with the support of the clerk; a man finds a body in a cemetery and gets rid off it; and a young woman pretending to be pregnant tries to raise money for an abortion. All of these characters and their fates are very connected.

How is it possible that 11:14 went virtually unreleased in theaters? After modest film-festival exposure, it played briefly in San Francisco in August 2005 (over two years after it was completed), but that's a cruel twist of fate for such a cleverly twisted movie about cruel twists of fate. Destined for sleeper status on DVD (and given a slightly higher profile by Hilary Swank's subsequent Oscar-winning performance in Million Dollar Baby), the audacious debut of writer-director Greg Marcks boasts a fantastic cast in a smartly constructed comedy/thriller, partly inspired by Blood Simple, in which a fatal traffic accident is examined and re-examined from multiple perspectives. The flashback structure involves all of the characters and events that lead up to the accident's deadly occurrence at 11:14 on an otherwise pleasant evening in Middleton, a typical suburb of Anytown, USA (filmed in the vicinity of Los Angeles). Marcks's screenplay attracted an impressive ensemble cast (costar Swank also signed on as an executive producer), and they're all given equal time as the intertwined plots are revealed. They include Rachael Leigh Cook (whose bad-girl behavior sets the chain of events in motion); Patrick Swayze and Barbara Hershey as her worried parents; Swank and Shawn Hatosy as would-be criminals with a dimwit plan; Henry Thomas as a drunk driver whose involvement is deeper than we realize; and Colin Hanks as one of three teenage vandals on a fast track to trouble. With falling corpses, graveyard sex, reckless gunplay, and a severed penis, it's all in good, grisly fun (apart from intricate plotting, Marcks has no lofty agenda up his sleeve), and there's ultimately not much point to its random misfortune, but 11:14 is clearly the work of a promising filmmaker, worthy of rediscovery on DVD. Bonus features include Marcks's intelligent commentary, a standard behind-the-scenes featurette, and a useful "character jump" feature allowing viewers to choose a plot trajectory whenever one character encounters another. --Jeff Shannon

Its a shame that I never even heard of this movie except by chance on amazon.com's list of "best movies you've never even heard of" (or something like that). As I read the list of actors in the film, I was surprised how this one fell through the cracks. It has Henry Thomas, Patrick Swayze, Barbara Hershey, Hilary Swank, Colin Hanks, Rachel Leigh Cook, and the always good Sean Hatosy. With a cast like that, how did it not get the kind of media attention that "Crash" got?

Maybe because it was made by a debut "Generation X" director, Greg Marcks. Like "Donnie Darko" director Richard Kelly before him, Marcks got shafted on the publicity machine. I saw "Crash" in theaters and really liked it. But for all its clever coincidences, I found the story quite unbelievably contrived (as the film characters are connected in surprising ways, which takes place in the huge megatropolis of Los Angeles). When I read the description for "11:14", it sounded a lot like "Crash" but came out a year or two earlier. After watching it, let me tell you...I have never had such a mind-blowing experience watching a film before. This film had me riveted as I watched how all the story segments fall into place. By the end of the movie, I was like "whoa!" Brilliant, man. Absolutely brilliant!

Like the movie "Crash", this one involves a couple car accidents and the ways the people involved are all connected to one another. To reveal any more is to ruin the film experience. All I can say is that the performances were really good. I've been a fan of Henry Thomas since "E.T.", since he is the same age as me and I related to his Elliot character back then. He's a good actor who deserves to be in more films.

"11:14" is writer/director Greg Marcks' first feature film, and it is a unique and riveting look at the randomness of life, and how our lives interconnect amid the chaos of it. Starting with the imaginative titles, it's keeps one's interest for all of its 85 minute length. All the action takes place on a single night in "Middletown", which represents any small USA town, the kind that closes up by 9 PM. Only 10 characters (as well as an overworked policeman and 2 paramedics) are left to create a plot so clever one can see this film several times, and be entertained by it.

The ensemble cast is fantastic, with Patrick Swayze (wearing a "fat suit" to hide his athletic physique) as Frank, the father of devious wench Cheri (Rachael Leigh Cook) and husband of Norma (Barbara Hershey). There is marvelous interaction between Buzzy and Duffy, 2 convenience store clerks, superbly played by Hilary Swank and Shawn Hatosy. Others in the fine cast include Henry Thomas as Jack, Clark Gregg as the beleaguered cop, and Stark Sands, Colin Hanks, and Ben Foster, as 3 kids out for a night of fun and mayhem.

Filmed on a shoestring in 26 nights in Altadena, California, Marcks was only 24 when he wrote the script, and filmed it a year later. He is very articulate, and the excellent DVD extras include informative commentary by him, as well as a "making of" featurette, deleted scenes (the final one is terrific), and more. The music by Clint Mansell is also great and adds much to the film. Marcks says about the randomness of life that "perhaps there is a larger design...but we're incapable of seeing it", and the film is also about choices, whether or not one takes responsibility for those choices, and how they affect other people. Though some may find this film too bizarre, it is is a brilliant debut for Marcks, and I eagerly look forward to seeing his future work.

Greg Marcks offers us in '11:14' that rare breed of film that keeps us on the edge of our seats for the entire 95 minutes running time. This strangely wonderful tale embraces the ideas of consequences and serendipity by unraveling a story of two deaths that affect the lives of eight kids and two parents, each with separate perceptions of shared incidents, and all of those perceptions intertwine in the most unique way imaginable. This is not a teen horror flick, not an attempt to do an imitation cheap movie like 'Blair Witch Project' look-alikes. '11:14' is simply a fine script played with comedy and tragedy and wide-eyed wonderment by a top notch cast of actors.

To relate the tale would to defray the anxiety Marcks creates in his writing. It is sufficient to say that little nerdy people in a small town somewhere are all caught up in two deaths, a thwarted robbery, a case of missing bodies, and a final core explanation of how the whole foolish mess got started. Along the way there are hilarious moments of accidental death during intercourse in a grave yard, a severed penis and its impact on hit and run kids, a rather randy and hormone driven trashy girl whose parents get caught up in the scheme of things... and that is only starters.

The exceptional cast includes Hilary Swank (with braces), Patrick Swayze (with body padding), Barbara Hershey obsessed with opera, Rachel Leigh Cook as the promiscuous round robin girl, Henry Thomas as a drunk driver, Ben Foster as the genital loser, Blake Heron, Shawn Hatosy, Blake Heron, Stark Sands, Colin Hanks, and Gregg Clark as the revolving police officer who tries to keep up and make sense of the mess.
