Pretty good, but its ending didn't quite do it for me
This is a short film from Amy Talkington and Lara Shapiro and it's about a rather meek young man who works in a pet shop who falls for a goth girl who comes in to buy a snake. Both characters were very interesting and I found myself liking them a lot. However, I really wish this had been expanded into a full-length film because at about 15 minutes, it was too short and there seemed to be a missing resolution. At the end, it just seemed to fizzle a bit as the snake slithered away from it's container. I really wanted the story to continue and to see what would happen next. Questions about the two (would they form a relationship or would he lose his job for just taking off?) filled my head and I would love to see this expanded. As it was, it was pretty good but not quite enough to make it exceptional--given more time, it easily could have been.
