The Clock is a Film That I Will Have to See (in) One Day?

I read about this 24 hour movie called 'The Clock' in 
Simon Garfield's work of art 'Timekeepers' and thought what a personal challenge it would be for me to sit and watch this film in one 24 hour sitting without falling asleep, considering I couldn't even stay awake when I went to see the new 'Dune' movie at the cinema with my two sons:-)
Of course I would have to wear some adult diapers or view the movie sitting on one of those gaming chairs out of the movie 'Idiocracy' with the built in loo:-)
After midnight, characters go to bars and drink.
Some seek intimacy while others are angry to have been awakened by the phone.
In the early hours, characters are generally alone or sleeping.
Several dream sequences occur between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.
At around 7 a.m., characters are shown waking up.
From 9 a.m. to noon, they eat breakfast and have wake-up sex.
As noon approaches, a sequence of action scenes build up to bells ringing in High Noon.
The video's pace immediately slows once noon passes.
Between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., transportation becomes important as characters travel on planes, trains, and automobiles.
At 6 p.m., characters eat dinner and have shootouts.
In the evening, they attend parties.
Around 8 p.m., orchestras and theaters begin their shows.
As midnight approaches, the characters become more frantic, throwing tantrums and requesting stays of execution.
Screeching violins from multiple clips build up to the moment.
At midnight Orson Welles is impaled on a clock tower in 
The Stranger, and Big Ben, a common sight in The Clock, explodes in V for Vendetta.
Cast list for 'The Clock'
I like how Rosanna Arquette is given top billing on the cast list for 'The Clock' at the film's IMDB page, as in the book 'Timekeepers' Simon writes about the movie 'Boyhood' taking 12 years to shoot, and that movie stars Patricia Arquette, Rosanna's sister:-)
Did the "Pop Oracle" Forecast Patricia Arquette's Success in the Movie "Boyhood" Back in 2010?
And I also just wrote a post about watching a movie at the drive-in starring their brother David -
I SAW SCREAM at the Drive-in, Because I Felt Safer?
I guess everything in life and time really is all connected after-all ... through the Arquette's:-)
NOW Here is a Synchronicity
