About this deal

However, at the end of each millennium, the gap is only 11 years, instead of 110, so we had a palindromic year in 1991 and again in 2002 but there will not be another one until 2112. Did anybody notice that the shoulder bag strap that the human/rat wears is labeled with the infinity sign? As the number 181 is the same number forward and backwards, taking off the watch is just the backward action of putting it on again.

I found the film enjoyable, and I accepted the recurring scenes as they were intended: without them, you'd have no film. Steven Guarnaccia is an illustrator and designer, and Associate Professor at Parsons The New School for Design, where he was the director of the Illustration Program from 2004-2011. Simple shots seem to have been somewhat re-juvinated and made ten times more interesting, for example when he looks at his watch; or when he picks up the payphone in the station and we get that Homicide-style jump cut/dialogue repetition. It's by a Mike Clelland of Driggs, adopts the road movie genre and is a pretty good effort even if the characters do say "wow" a lot. Then latter in the ending sequence they keep repeating the exact footage not in flash back but because the director was simply too lazy shoot different actions in different ways.

Guarnaccia's intelligent, comic drawings alter the reading and savoring of palindromes into an altogether new, visual experience - wise, pointed and funny. For those who haven't even looked at the DT series, but enjoyed this short film, take a moment and discover one of the most interesting Stephen King novels I've ever read. It is too bad I have to resort to this type of silly workaround to make a simple point about the movie, one which I hope will help others see it a little differently. This mysterious form of wordplay known as the palindrome--in which a group of phrases can be read both forwards and backwards--has bewitched and beguiled readers for centuries and, due to its mirrored, dualistic quality, was at one point considered to have magical powers.

I assume that this is trying to show that everyone is looking for "salvation" or inner peace wherever they can find it.There's also a sense of responsible in that you're the one giving him a break, cutting into the cycle.

But, again, the rat race metaphor is really very clever, and I didn't understand the rat metaphor (assuming I'm correct) until the film started its second cycle.However, now I now realize that this movie's point is to slow us down in our daily lives and that the alternate ending is just a witty way to make people to take a break from their schedule. The meaning of the film is found in the emotion, the rush, the pace, and the incongruent of the screen life with the evergreen that sits quietly at the "real screen" of the window of the city. Telly Savalas is an actor best known for playing the part of police detective Kojak on the 1970s cop drama of the same name. I wasn’t sure which, but I tried to help him out by finding some deeper meaning to attribute, rather than burst his bubble with anything other than a nod of agreement.
