What’s the hurry, Harry?

Miracle Mile - 4/5
There’s a rare mood found here. It’s got a heapin’ helpin’ of wacky and legit-no-shit tension that leads you to have the same reaction to watching the movie as the characters have of living in it: how seriously can you take this? Is the world going to end in 50 minutes? And why would we trust this guy? You’ve got no idea where it’s going to go. And I think it would have succeeded regardless of where it ended up. And Tangerine Dream fits along perfectly: building pressure while being hard to take seriously. Like holding a needle next to a children's party balloon. Shit – it sounds like an insult.
