Code Unknown. My professor load me his copy, thinking I might enjoy it which I did. I was afraid it was going to be gimmicky, like Time Code. Instead it proved to be a very valid use of its trick. The movie was divided into maybe 20 different scenes, each one take long and separated by black. Any of these scenes could stand on its one. Some were just studies of driving or the loneliness of an empty household. Several plot lines run in between these scenes, intersecting thematically through the characters. All very well done that straddles the line between visual art and cinema.
