Bedhead (1991)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This short film from Robert Rodriguez shows exactly what you can do with very little money but a lot of imagination. The story is about a little girl who is constantly being abused by her jerk older brother. His bad bedhead hair is where the title comes from and after being knocked to the ground the sister grows some special powers, which she is going to use to teach the brother a lesson.

I don't know what the budget of this film was but it's obviously very small yet the director manages to show off how much talent he has. I watch a lot of these shorts and more often than not they're good movies but ever so often you find one where you can watch and see that the director would have a future in cinema. This is such an example because the story itself is just so creative and it's done in such a fashion that you can't help but smile at the revenge and also be impressed with the technical quality of the production. There's some terrific editing and some great camera-work, two things that would become a staple for the director in future years.
