getting to the truth
20 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this uncomfortable 16-minute short film a casual chat with a woman preparing for a night on the town gradually turns into a confrontational interview when the subject begins describing the rape she suffered recently. There's a growing feeling of unease as the questions probe deeper into the traumatic details, and the unblinking eye of the camera only makes the encounter more frightening. But is the film an actual, spontaneous documentary or a Cassavetes-like improvisation? Viewers will be kept guessing until the very end, when the final credits reveal the hidden irony of the title, showing just how easily and convincingly the truth can be faked.
