Synopsis by Mark Deming
A slacker who's down on his luck takes a walking tour of New York City in this low-key independent comedy. Trevor Phelps (Jack Thyme) is a 26-year-old nobody with few appreciable skills and fewer prospects. Down to his last 20 bucks, Trevor wakes up one morning and suddenly remembers he has a job interview at 5:30 in the afternoon. With nothing else to do and a whole day ahead of him to fill, Trevor decides to walk to the other side of Manhattan for the interview, rather than take the train or grab a taxi. Along the way, Trevor meets a variety of friends and strangers, interacting and sharing his philosophies with everyone along the way. The first feature from director Anthony Jaswinski, Killing Time was shown at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
