One interesting thing about watching the movie was that I became aware fairly fast that it seemed to be a one-person-in-a-car movie (maybe because of the "how much longer"? I don't remember for sure what first made me think that). I'd think that the awareness itself (or just the awareness of a "concept") would make it much harder to build suspense. They did a really good job of that.

The awareness did make me think some about the camera shots they used. For a static setting, they really did a lot of cuts, which kind of makes sense. You use the cuts to reduce the static-ness.

It's kind of funny seeing this right after a Jarmusch movie. I've been watching his movies since Stranger Than Paradise and one of the striking things about that movie and some that followed was the use of a static frame rather than following action. (It's also one of the things that makes that movie so less effective on video - the fixed frame was very unfamiliar in movies, but common in TV sitcoms)
