Storyline

In Judgement County, Texas, a rookie cop gets the ultimate test when an APB for a child killer fits the general description of a man he stops for speeding. By day's end, his boss, the sheriff, is out of reach, a power outage blocks him from checking the suspect's identity or getting a better description of the wanted man, and the town has become a mob set on vengeance. Race complicates things slightly (the suspect is Black, the cop and most townsfolk are White), as does the brotherhood of war (one's a Vietnam vet, the other Desert Storm). Our rookie is used to applying his boss's pithy sayings to situations he's in, but in this case, he may need to make his own judgment. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This short was great. It had a great story and excellent performances. It's a surprise that the Academy didn't nominate it for best short film. Clarence Williams is a stand out as a man who is suspected of murder. Illeana Douglas and Matthew MConaughey (I probably didn't spell his name right, but name someone who can) are equally fine as a woman seeking justice for her uncle who was killed by the murderer and a deputy trying to straiten eveything out, so he can find out what's going on. It comes highly recommended and I hope anyone who reads this review goes to AtomFilms and sees it soon. I give it an A or A-.
