Re: Movies that span a single day.

You guys are forgetting one of the all-time greatest movies ever made:
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Another one (I think it's been a while since I've seen it) is
Die Monster Die (with Boris Karloff)

Re: Movies that span a single day.

all of the above plus the latestthe pineapple express

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Pineapple Express is at least 2 days. Think about it. It starts out where he "serves" those people, goes to the girl's high school and then they're on the run and in the forest then they wake up the next day. They even slept through half the 2nd day. Maybe 3 days I dunno. Damn I need to watch it again.

I got some hand for you, punk bitch.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

the ones that i can think of off the top of my head are.

The Breakfast club
The Strangers
most horror/ thriller flicks do this

i found jesus, he was hiding behind the couch the whole time!!!

Re: Movies that span a single day.

how about the masterpiece Magnolia? i'm pretty positive it takes place in one day.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

superbad

Re: Movies that span a single day.

88 minutes

Re: Movies that span a single day.

I was gonna say Magnolia. Aside from a short next-morning coda, it's virtually all one day, and it probably IS one 24-hour period.

Also it's my favorite movie.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Nick and Nora's Infanite Playlist
Waiting

That's all I can think of right now.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Collateral



"I am Jack's cold sweat."

Re: Movies that span a single day.

I dont't think "Cube" was mentioned. While they don't specify exactly how long it takes, it couldn't have been too long since they didn't have any water.

There's also "Bachelor Party," that was all one day if I remember it right.
"Vacancy" was from 0800-ish to the morning. "Hills Have Eyes 2," "Still Waiting," and "Dirty" took place mostly in one day.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

"2 or 3 Things I Know About Her", Godard's first postmodern film.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Run Lola Run
Magnolia
12 Angry Men
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Breakfast Club
Reservoir Dogs
Festen
Ferris Bueller's Day Off


Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Eternal Sunshine? I've only seen that once a couple years ago, but I don't remember it happening in one day. Makes me want to watch it again!

Re: Movies that span a single day.

'Go' could almost fit into this category.
I LOVED 200 cigarettes btw.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

I've read all 15 pages and no one has yet mentioned:

One Fine Day
The Paper
And I think Roman Holday takes place within 24 hours, but I could be mistaken.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Wow, I never realized how many good movies span just a single day.

Just to be funny I will throw out The Wizard of Oz

Re: Movies that span a single day.

The OP mentioned One Fine Day, lol.


I only do it with superheroes.

Re: Movies that span a single day.

Has Training Day been mentioned? That's an obvious one.
