Fascinating
26 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having seen this film through several stages of its creation, I still find myself intrigued and fascinated by the unique interpretation of the classic story. The setting of modern Vancouver, complete with a wide ranging cast of characters, gives it a realism that cannot be captured in the musical format ("Man of La Mancha"). John Taylor's performance is intense and I found myself equally frightened and embarrassed for him. Tom Braidwood balances this in a sturdy and sometimes sad performance, complete with a hopeful, uplifting (yet subtly so) ending.

Short films are wonderful, and Lance Peverely has a gift for filling the limited time with a complete, well-rounded story. I recommend this film for any intelligent person who can appreciate the complexity of the tale.
