Time flies when watching a movie

Films manipulate our sense of time insofar as a whole lifetime might transpire before our very eyes, but in “real” time only two hours have passed. Perhaps a film gives individuals the illusion of escape from the constraints of the colonization of time by providing the illusion of a different experience of time, if only temporarily.
