    Help!
    I was watching this great movie on TV the other night and fell asleep about 20 mins before the end.

    What happened?
    Anyone know?

    Thanks

    Last Night Review

    As we grow older, life has a way of showing us more clearly what death is. Somehow each pasting year we learn to feel it more deeply, but in someway perhaps learn each year to accept its final coming in some small way as we had never felt before. I don't know if there is ever a peace to such acceptance, but we kow for each of us there is a day certain when for us the end will be real. The "Last Night" shines a light on those thoughts.

    The movie is for adults. Teens hurry up to experience sex, booze, careers, drugs, and other non-childlike pastimes, but, for them, facing death and understanding death's infinte reality and all that ideath is not is not something easily grasped or feared when mid-life crisis is a mystery rather than a memory. Last Night is spooky, erie, and unsettling. It makes one think and face that dark figure and associated date of our own death. What was third person becomes personal.

    It is a story concept that has great potential. Us cold war kids are familar with the concept. It is a movie any thoughtful person would very much enjoy.
