3 shorts by Burnett
25 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

When it rains (1995)

** (out of 4)

A musician tries to save a woman and her children from being thrown out of their South Central apartment. Seeing as this short came twenty-plus years after the directors previous films, I was a little shocked to see he hadn't grown much in his directorial style. Perhaps it's unfair to judge him by these shorts but I really haven't been impressed too much.

Several Friends (1969)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Student film from director Burnett shows several friends in South Central L.A. sitting around smoking pot and drinking beer. I'm really not sure what point the director was going for but I got very little out of the story. I'm not sure if this is a bash about unemployment or if this is suppose to be fun. The plot never really comes through so it's hard to know how we're suppose to feel about the characters.

Horse, The (1973)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Strange and surreal short about four white men waiting for a black man to show up so that he can put down an old horse. This is a very strange short but Burnett tells the story in such a way that it kept me interested until the end. I'm not sure what the message was or if there was one but this is certainly a weird little film.
