The Clock

The Clock ★★★★

A musical without the songs, or I should say, "proper" musical setpieces. Instead, we get a symphony of nightlife sounds, a drunken monologue, a snippet of a ballad heard over the radio, a playful argument over breakfast, a montage of unhelpful bureaucrats, and finally, the best song of all, a brief moment of post-marital bliss, expressed in knowing silence.
