Skolimowski's technique is impressive: the overlapping narratives are expertly handled, and the points of intersection can be dazzling.
"11 Minutes" finds veteran Polish writer-director Jerzy Skolimowski in a decidedly experimental mood.
Skolimowski ties these characters' stories so close together that you're never really sure who they are. And that's OK.
Every situation is presented with maximum lucidity and almost complete inscrutability.
An extravagantly pointless exercise in protracting the buildup to some meaningless carnage, garnished with metaphysical pretension so cutesy and vague that it feels actively insulting.
While the narrative strands leave something to be desired in this film, many of the performances are strong and its technical composition is very well done, creating an exhilarating, atmospheric film that leaves a lasting impression.
In an astonishing game of mirages-where time expands and contracts giddily-[Jerzy] Skolimowski manages the 81 minutes of the movie, which correspond to 11 fictional minutes, to feel like real time.
Some people might think this is a brave piece of film making from a true maverick; others will see it as 11 minutes of their lives (repeated over and over from different viewpoints) they'll never get back.
A very confidently-made fractured narrative about various lives intersecting the same 11 minutes in Warsaw.
winking, nudging, puckish
A mad punk smorgasbord of fractured time, multiple narratives, POV shots, vague apocalyptic anxiety and a pounding soundtrack.
At once cleverly experimental and mass-appeal action-oriented, but 11 Minutes contains a major flaw that keeps it from being a superior work.
