CIFF opening night film, TiMER
Friday, March 19, 2010
last night i had the privilege to attend the cleveland international film festival opening film and gala with my friend JV.
as we headed to tower city cinema's i had the general idea of what the opening film, TiMER, was all about.
essentially a revolutionary device has been created that is implanted into your wrist that counts down to the specific moment that you meet your one true love.
it's a science - when the day you meet your soul mate arrives, the moment you make eye contact with him/her your TiMER goes off, as does his/hers alerting both of you that whether it's today or ten years from now, this is the person you are going to be with for all eternity.
it's an interesting concept to say the least.
as a sucker for all things romantic comedy as well as technology geekdom this movie was right up my alley. specifically because much like the protagonist in the film i'm about to turn 30 with zero knowledge or direction of who this mysterious soul mate of mine is, let alone if he even exists.
but i promise you this movie isn't all self reflective bitter old women style - it's actually VERY FUNNY. i don't recall the last time i laughed out loud as much during a screening.
but between all the laughter and awkward jokes you can't help but wonder, if given the opportunity to install a TiMER alerting you of when you're meeting your true love, would you do it?
would it be worth it? would it just cause you to stop looking for love at not, never taking a detour, simply waiting till your TiMER goes off?
would it take all the fun out of it? it being dating, random sex, mystery, flirting, etc
personally i'm torn as to what i would do - as i'm admittedly a hopeless romantic i'm also lazy as all hell and if someone had the ability to tell me who and when i would meet the person i'm supposed to be with i'd probably do it.
what about you? would you get a TiMER?
