Dir. Julia Loktev (2007).
A frail-looking young woman, outfitted with a bomb, wanders through Times Square, searching for the moment to blow up. Free-floating anxiety gives way to fear and trembling, being and nothingness, curiosity and impatience. Day Night Day Night isn’t just a movie that explores the nightmare of a potential terrorist attack in the most public of public spaces; it’s a movie about the inherent terror in those spaces.
