"Day Night" (from IFC and TWC in 2006) foreshadows the Shahzad incident
There is a sequence that reminds one of “Phone Booth” where she struggles to make connections through a pay phone, and then has to panhandle to get more quarters. She’s been told to pull pin if anyone suspects, and on NYC streets she gives plenty of opportunity to attract suspicion. This 2006 film is agonizing to watch.
One wonders if Faisal Shahzad could have known about this film or watched it.
Compare this to the film "Making Of" reviewed here July 23.
