December 21, 2000 3:58 PM   Subscribe is the first movie Web site that ever made me eager to see a movie I haven't heard a thing about. It won't open in the US till March, but it looks awfully clever, and I'm always up for a good short-term-memory-loss revenge thriller. And it's a site whose all-Flash version is better than the HTML version - another rarity. Also, the domain name is pretty clever - the movie's name spelled backwards, which turns out to be thematically and structurally appropriate to the movie.

This is the first time I've been impressed by something done in flash. I owe it more to the design rather then any amazing ability of flash.

I saw the movie here in Paris. Quite an excellent thriller: a simple, uncomplicated pic sporting a twisted mental groove. Stars Guy Pearce, Carrie-Ann Moss and Joe Pantoliano. It's one of those slow-dawning concepts, tinted through decay and decline, with a constantly cycling time perspective in which one scene forward is followed by one scene back. It could make an excellent stage play. Info: BBC Norfolk Online, Picturehouse Cinemas (UK), Go2Coventry.

did anyone else notice the seemingly password-protected portion of the site? if you click on 'questions' in the headline of the initial newspaper clipping, it asked "Who Did I Kill?" and you can type something in the piece below it.

The name of the man he killed is unknown to the police. And him, apparently.

Interesting. I'm still trying to unlock it. Anyone else have any luck?

Oh, man! I didn't even notice that link! It's an eight-character field; I've tried "yourself" and all the names from the photographs. I thought maybe... nope, "Catherine" won't fit, and "yourwife" doesn't open anything.

This will drive me nuts all winter!
