The Great Bell in the Elizabeth Tower, aka Big Ben, has been silenced for a while, causing some to fear the very end of time, or at least England as we know it (harrumph).
[Intertitle: Time hasn’t actually been an RR topic, but it is one of the categories on Marco’s Related Topics page and the other news didn’t inspire me and I should be in bed.]
Films have painted histories covering vast stretches of time and taking place in the twinkling of an eye (in a universe somewhere). Other films have shown the effects of time, on people, on places, on events. Some just play with it.
My choice does that, collapsing years into minutes, just as it collapses lives into bit parts: Synecdoche, New York.
What films would you recommend where time takes a front seat?
