The names and roles intersect to the point that you have to wonder if they are not all the same woman experiencing the same time plane simultaneously. It's not something you can pick up on one watch but I've seen this one a few times. Fronkee…

    Task #22: Watch a film featuring a character who has diabetes.

    This film by the Nolan brothers is where I first fell in love with Christopher Nolan as a director. Before he begun making Batman films, he director this adaptation of his brother's short story. Told in reverse order by chapters, this "who done it" tale is more of a "who am I" story of a man who doesn't have amnesia but short…
