This movie is a Christmas miracle. Why is it so good? I have no idea. Multiple story lines. All interconnected. This is one of those movies that shouldn’t have been made or even attempted. It is so difficult to pull off. Five-thirty eight completed an in depth analysis of screen time that is worth reviewing. It doesn’t really tell why the spiderweb works. And duplicating this movie’s success (yes, others have tried), is almost an impossibility. Multiple plot threads are hard. While watching it last night, I marveled at of all things, the office space. Big computers. Nokia cell phones. Fax machines. Corner offices.
Yes, the technology changes. People and their struggles continue to endure.
