Single Day Movies

Here's a collection of films which take place entirely or almost entirely over the course of a 24 hour period or less.

*Some films contain brief prologues, epilogues, or flashbacks outside of the main 24 hour period -- or play with the conventions of time -- but still they primarily take place over the course of a single day.
