Visually stunning SF short
18 December 2000 | by (North Charleston, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

Fascinating short film adapted from a Ray Bradbury story about a world where humans live out their lifespans in eight days, and the attempts to change this. A warrior is literally trained from infancy to reach a specific destination before he grows old and dies eight days later. The ending gets a tad bogged down in pseudo-philosophical mush but, as expected from Saul Bass, the visuals are absolutely stunning.
