A Perfect Film Short - Wish It Was Available!, 20 August 2001
Author: Kenn-15 from Marin County, CA

This little gem of an independent comedy from veteran actor-director Alan Arkin is, as far as I know, completely unavailable. I caught it at a film festival, and loved it. You have to be familiar with Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" to get the joke, but if you are, you'll get a big kick out of it. This film is yet another example of why there should be a video label that specializes in the home video distribution of short films. Why aren't films like this available in the home video market?? Bravo, Alan Arkin!
