Duration: 81 mins

A new thriller, directed by Polish New Wave master Jerzy Skolimowski, masterfully disorients viewers with a series of seemingly unrelated vignettes that ultimately meet up but not in the way you might expect, based on everything-is-connected dramas like “Babel” and “Crash”.
“11 Minutes” is the work of an older filmmaker, but it’s not an old man’s film. He’s angry and alienated by technology, but his film is playful in the same way that the best thrillers by Hitchcock students John Carpenter, Brian De Palma and Dario Argento perversely mess with your expectations. You have to submit to the filmmakers’ cantankerous whims and be willing to be led around by the nose to get the most out of “11 Minutes.”
