As the clock counts down the final minutes of what will likely be the last morning of Larry Taylor's life, events unfolding simultaneously at another location detail precisely how what seemed to be a typical home invasion may in fact be something far more sinister. Larry Taylor was jet-lagged when he awoke to find two strangers in his bedroom, and in the next ten minutes he will be forced to make some important decisions that could mean the difference between life and death. Only by acknowledging the events unfolding elsewhere at precisely the same moment can it be determined who these men are and what they truly want, and as the connection between the two events slowly begins to come into focus, so, too, does the truth. … More

Critic Reviews for Ten 'til Noon
Perhaps Ten 'til Noon is not exactly Citizen Kane, and perhaps all of the puzzle pieces never add up to anything but an engaging hour in the theater, but watching all the bits come together keeps you awake for the length of the film.
Everything here is top-notch -- on-the-money ensemble cast, apt locations, Alice Brooks' gleaming camerawork, Joe Kraemer's intense score and Kalman Alexander's razor-sharp editing. It's a class act financed on a shoestring.
A real waste of time.
[A] thrillingly original film that plays with narrative structure and tweaks the expectations audiences bring with them from long experience with crime flicks...
Ten 'til Noon moves along a lot smoother than one would think. This could've easily been a giant mess, but aiding filmmaker Scott Storm in keeping his ship together is a talented ensemble cast who compliment the sharp, witty script.
What's missing is any thematic underpinning or true character depth; this is basically a jigsaw puzzle. But it's a dandy jigsaw puzzle, and that's a pleasure in itself.
While most of the acting, production, and tricky writing is good, the film overall lacks depth, intensity, hard-hitting drama, and message.
An impressive tour de force of writing and realization in its capacity to keep us in the grip of virtuoso noir intricacy. The Cinema Signal is green -- Go!
