This movie shifts back and forth through time, introducing thecharacters and moving the story along in fits and starts -- a technique that cansometimes feel gimmicky, but, in this instance at least , is well done and very effective.
(Barkacs, M 2005) This structure can reflect upon the suspicions and awareness that the characters experience as they each suspect a person to have been involved with thepolice. It reflects upon their confusion of the situation which causes the narrative to bein a non-chronological order, explaining certain situations which are relevant to specifictopics in conversation which occur in the warehouse.
