11 MINUTES (Jerzy Skolimowski, 2015) – FILM REVIEW

Perhaps Jerzy Skolimowski has an idiosyncratic concept of time. After all, he once took 17 years off filmmaking. Here he is, in the film, exploring events occurring over the course of only eleven minutes, during which several characters’ paths are crossed. What results is quite a thrilling depiction of the helplessness we have over the events of our lives, handled masterfully via editing and post-production and enriched by a driving score of guitar, bass and drums signed by Pawel Mykietyn. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
