George Kuchar directed this ten-minute short, which has him playing himself, a director, who is giving direction to actress Barbara Lapsley. Basically for ten straight minutes we see Kuchar acting out what he wants the actress to do and then she gives her take on the screen. Kuchar is a cult filmmaker like no other but the majority of the film's I've seen from him were just confusing and downright bizarre to say the least. This film here is actually a pretty good one on a number of levels but the biggest is just getting to see the fun Kuchar appears to be having because he really gets into the role when trying to explain what he wants to see from the actress. I would also argue that Lapsley is also very good here and the two certainly work well together and that makes for a fun short.
