"Day Night Day Night" seems the sort of movie that will polarize viewers. Some will love it while others will find it unbearable. I'm in the former group. The plot, alas, has been inaccurately described here by another viewer. Unfortunately, I cannot correct the error since doing so would reveal a major spoiler. I'll cite the relevant plot points.

A young woman, superbly portrayed by Luisa Williams (Chacun Son Cinéma), arrives in an American city and is picked up by a man who takes her to a hotel. She is soon visited by three men, who prepare her to be a suicide bomber. The remainder of the film deals with the woman's quest.

Describing the plot, however, is grossly insufficient. "Day Night Day Night" is an extremely slow movie, and that slowness is a huge part of the point. The camera lingers on the woman as she clips her toenails, washes her clothing in the hotel sink, or shaves her armpits. At other points, the filmmakers elevate certain sounds, especially the sounds of the woman's eating and of ambient conversations. It certainly would be possible to fast-forward through some of these spots without losing any sense of what happens, but to do so would be, I believe, to miss the point.

That point, as I understand it, is that the woman is human. Yes, she is planning a murderous act, but she is also human. Her target, we know, is an American city, but we do not know why. As she prepares for her attack, she does the thoroughly normal things that we all do. She bathes, turns on lights in her hotel room, and performs other mundane tasks.

I love dark films and dark subjects. I believe that taboos need to be explored in cinema more. So when I heard about this movie, I knew I had to watch it. And when the credits rolled, all I could think was, "I want my 90 minutes back."

This is such an interesting idea, but the execution is sorely lacking. It had nothing to do with the low budget. The first hour was gripping, with all of the preparations, and staying in the hotel room. (The only thing that was really grating, production-wise, was the sound. It was over modulated in quite a few sections, especially the eating, which I'll get to). It was claustrophobic, and every action the woman did revealed a bit of her character. Not enough, in my opinion, but at least there was some. The men in masks, and the repetition of words was haunting.

But then she goes out to Times Square to do the deed, and it turned out to be 40 minutes of walking around, eating, eating, more eating, more walking, then, of course, the bomb doesn't go off, which was the first event in the last 40 minutes. The problem is, that beat gets hit twice, and it's not nearly as effective the second time around. Then it's making phone calls, all of which are futile, except for one call, which, I guess, was the reveal (she lied about something that we thought was true earlier), but it wasn't much of a reveal at all. This is followed by an incomprehensible "street harassment" moment, which went on way too long, then... nothing.

It's those last 40 minutes (which, if the director was thinking a bit more about her audience, should have been 15) that negate the entire movie. It makes the first hour pointless.

My wife almost kicked my butt for wasting two hours of her life watching this movie. She was a great sport, but I can certainly understand how she feels.

When you watch the movie, you feel like your caught in a loop. Two minutes into the movie you have a broad brush idea of the plot. You think to yourself, "Yeah, here comes the action!" Nope. The movie, for the most part, stays in low gear for the entire duration.

It's a movie that has ideas that are more interesting to discuss than it is to watch. It squanders action and forward momentum. In summary, I'd like to thank my wife for being too hard on me. I really wanted to watch this movie, but I too lost two hours of my life.

In Albert Camus's famous novel, `The Stranger,' the protagonist smokes a cigarette before he is executed and brusquely passes off any attempts to distract him from his last little experience of pleasure. That scene came to my mind while watching Julia Lokler's myopic little gem, `Day Night Day Night'. So it doesn't surprise me that, while glancing at the product description afterwards, the movie is described as an award-winning "existential" movie.

Throughout her film, she uniquely turns up the sound in the scenes that lead to the film's confrontation and climax. Whether bathing or eating an apple, we hear the volume turned up to a remarkable degree. At first I naively thought that this was random. Alternately, it either irritated me or unintentionally made me laugh, but I soon discovered the movie's genius. Generically named, "She" (Luisa Williams), is trained to be a terrorist. At the tender age of 19, she is presented merely as a child, someone who is a molded "jihadist" ready to die for her cause. Sent to a motel room in New Jersey, she is prepared with every detail by her adult comrades who ready her with a bomb attached in her backpack, soon to be sent to blow up civilians in Times Square in New York City.

We aren't given too much about her intentions or motivations, but it is revealed that both parents have died, and she is left like a vulnerable child. Some of the indoctrination reminded me of the Patty Hearst controversy; even though I reserve judgment for that whole debacle. "She" is certainly younger and more impressionable than Hearst possibly was, but her isolation is clearly presented. What better way to show a potential casualty of terror than with a needy orphan?
