R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
On the day that a serial killer that he helped put away is supposed to be executed, a noted forensic psychologist and college professor receives a call informing him that he has 88 minutes left to live.
The film runs in "real time" meaning that at the moment Jack Gramm is first told he has only 88 minutes to live, the remaining running time of the motion picture until the identity of the person who set Gramm up is exactly 88 minutes.
Look at me. Look at the kite.
When Jack is running to the Stern building, he runs across a wet courtyard covered in leaves. Then from a camera angle above the courtyard, there are no leaves, and the pavement is dry.
There are at least two BluRay versions that end with Jack telling Forster he has 12 hours to live. So both without the scene afterwards about Forsters death. The run times of these two versions differ by several minutes (~1:47 vs ~1:51). In the longer version, while some scenes are actually cut drastically, many other scenes contain a lot of extra dialogue. The differences in scenes are thus bigger than the differences in runtime.
