This morning I treated myself to nearly five hours of The Clock at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. The Clock is Christian Marclay’s immensely enjoyable 24-hour compilation of time-related clips from movies; it consists of thousands of bits of footage from a wide spectrum of films, which have been compiled in such a way that the time in the movie always matches the time in the theater.
If you love movies, you should by all means catch as much of The Clock as you can, should it happen to make an appearance in a city near you.
I entered the screening at 8:45 a.m., and I departed at 1:30 p.m. I wish I could have stayed longer.
