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.]]>

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
