Strange, but nice, 16 May 2005
Author: Hugh G. Rection (ElKabong-3) from Humble, Texas, USA

Saw this on the Independent Film Channel as part of a program of short subjects. Like so many such shorts, it's on the weird side, but at least with short subjects they're, by definition, short. Even if one sucks hard you're only out 10 or 15 minutes of your life. Sometimes it seems to me that shorts shown on IFC are in a continuing competition for "weirdest film ever", but I catch myself being drawn to watching as much to see what will be on next as anything else. I have, on rare occasion, seen interesting and even moving short subjects, but they're mostly just ways to kill 15 minutes. About the only place you're likely to see this short is on one of the IFC's short film collections which run regularly. Since, the program description never specifies which subjects will run, about all you can do is watch and see what turns up.

I rate this short subject 5 out of 10, neither bad nor good, just kinda existing.
