88 Minutes - R

Dr. Jack Gramm (Al Pacino) testifies against a serial rapist/killer and the man is convicted. Nine Years later,the man is about to be executed and Gramm receives a mysterious call telling him he has 88 minutes to live. He gets calls regularlly, telling him how much time he has left. The thing I really liked about this movie is that is they do an excellent job of making everyone around him look guilty. (I will give myself kudos for figuring out the guilty one :). I really enjoyed this movie primarily because of the plot. Gramm is an FBI Psychiatrist, but he is more like a detective trying to figure out who is behind these calls.

A couple of content warnings: a couple of graphic death scenes where the victim is hanging upside down and bleeding. One of the characters is gay, and there is a brief scene of a few seconds where 2 women kiss. One scene where a girl is brushing her teeth nude (shot from a side angle, so you don't see anything). I though it was an excellent movie.
