About the Movie
Andy (Jay Baruchel), a hyperactive compulsive gambler, has just been given one hour to live before hit man Reuban (Randy Quaid) takes his life in exchange for overdue gambling debts. With the deadline looming, Andy chooses to spend his last hour in more than one unusual way. We soon discover that there is more to him than meets the eye and Reuban turns out to have a secret or two of his own. Shot in real time, the film sheds light on the importance of what we do with the time we have in this world.
Great performances by both Baruchel and Quaid lay this story and it's message out beautifully. Complimented by a great Canadian soundtrack, I definitely recommend Real Time.
What a great movie!
I have trouble describing this movie except for saying what it isn't. There's no action scene, no love interest, and .... Well, this movie is just different. I liked it; it's a nice change from big brand hollywood stars who play the same part in every movie they are in. These guys are sincere and real and the story they tell is good to watch right up to the end. What's neat about it is that almost every scene, you're struggling with "why is he doing this" ... so you spend the whole time skeptical... but it ends up making sense, which is a nice big light bulb moment for the audience.
