Wondering why times are missing?

Act of God

What is the metaphysical effect of being struck by lightning? ... No, really. This documentary by Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes) is an elegant, cinematic meditation on getting zapped by a bolt from the blue. There are interviews with a crazy quilt of first-person shockees--from a former CIA assassin to a French storm chaser to experimental writer Paul Auster. Each contemplates the Big Question: random natural occurence or predestined event? 76 minutes
