"The Robber" playing now
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this short a lot. It reminds me of the short films that used to get more exposure on HBO and other up-and-coming cable channels when I was a kid, when they needed to fill gaps in their programming grid. Similarly, I caught this short recently on INHD, one of the newest high-definition variety channels as part of their "Shorts in HD" program.

Though the transfer is full of neg dirt (white specs) and "frying eggs" from the analog audio track, the picture and sound were marvelous in HD. I even preferred that the analog artifacts were there because it made the experience recall those shorts when I was a kid, mentioned above. The blacks were deep and the night blues were slick. It was also sharp as a tack. Aside from the technicals (I'm a geek) the story was interesting and the performance engaging.

Unfortunately INHD doesn't list this "filler" program on their website or on my cable's programming grid so I'll just have to watch for it and be ready with the record button if I want to save it off to my DVR.
