We are all passengers hanging on the coattails of Time, some of us though refuse to move on once the journey has ended; they hang around and experience the decay of all they ever knew, almost inevitably again and again. Death is traumatic, undoubtedly disturbing, not only for those left behind to carry on riding those flowing coattails but perhaps for those who see the battle and fight end; for life is silent and hurtful for those who see life through the dark hollow eyes of A Ghost Story.

People, like places, can hold their secrets for as long as possible, the strange ways in which a village ticks can also manifest itself in the way that a person’s mind can become; closed off, unable to deal with a certain moment in the past to the point where it just no longer acknowledges the Time ever existed, till it becomes hearsay, rumour, dismissed gossip in the next generation coming through.

Corruption is one in which no one can truly escape unless they have found a way to shelter from the storm of everyday and the lure of greed and fear; everybody has a weakness, everybody has a secret in which they can be pushed to the point of crossing their own line of decency. It is a decency that unfortunately is missing in the film Triple 9.
