clues at the scene

I remember this movie years ago and I was compelled to watch. It wasn't the story that drove me forward but rather the belief that something would transpire of meaning. It had WTF? syndrome. I didn't care about the protagonist. I cared about all the weird events and wondered when one might occur next.

It wasn't compelling as a story. Some of the events and characters were compelling as in so twisted I wanted to see their next action.

I need to remember as I construct Despot that the palpable sense of tension and danger stems from story as well as the twisted characters in it. One does not exclude the other.
