Storyline

Over lunch, a man tells a story to two companions. He learns from his doctor that he hasn't long to live. He tries to talk to his daughter, from whom he's estranged. He figures out his bank balance and visits his credit union. Meanwhile, a young man with a wife and child needs a loan to make ends meet. And, an overweight, phlegmatic cop is assigned to direct traffic at a corner where the stop lights are out. These seemingly disparate characters and events are about to meet. As the story unfolds, one of the lunch-table listeners works a crossword puzzle: what's a five-letter word that starts with "i" denoting incongruity between expectation and reality?

All around great short w/ a talented director.
3 December 2005 | by (location, location, location [winksmile]) – See all my reviews

It is fun to watch film and enjoy every moment! If you have the chance...see this one. You will want to view it more than once, I promise. "Crosswalk" was filmed in Texas and fills some fine character roles with some of the great and talented Texas-based actors. Every second of the film is as important and interesting to watch as the next one. I look for the writers to do something else to be enjoyed as much as this collaboration. The film moves nicely without wasteful and dull moments many shorts serve up these days. It is uniquely clever and not a clever I have seen before. If you see it, you will tell many-a many good things about it. Subtle is simple is basic is everything.
