My clock controls me more than any other person or device ever could. It tells me when I have to work, eat, worship, and sober up.
And my clock tells me that I’m getting older and older.
The greatest tease that clocks perform is their appearance in some of the most exciting moments of film. When I see a clock in a movie, I am reminded that my time is slowly ticking away. But those who are lucky enough to have their images caught on celluloid (or digitally, or what new media will capture our storytelling) are frozen in time. Being in a movie means you have defied the clock’s power.
