Wordless and Beautiful
11 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm so glad that an Asian action director didn't take a hold of this idea and turn it into 30 guys getting murdered. This is what a short film should look like. It has a simple plot, it draws your attention, and you want more. I watch a lot of movies and TV shows on my computer, and I love throwing a short film in between two files.

I have a very young son that hates everything but Thomas the Train and Family Guy, and I'm always curious how he'll respond to a film like this. He's asleep now, but tomorrow, I think I'll show it to him, and hope he doesn't cry. I love films like this because they remind me of moments from my long and sorted past.

The way the tramp reacts to the gun is so real. Anyone who's held a gun has thought about hiding it, holding against your head, or it being stolen. Fassbinder speaks to anyone who's owned a gun, shot a gun or been to war. But he also speaks to anyone who has taken heroin, been a high-school teacher, lived in a very poor country or lived on a farm. He speaks to anyone who has gained power, but lost it; laughing at him.
