visually compelling CGI artifice, trite ending, acting leaves something to be desired
16 November 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Fluid and stunning in its cgi 3D sets that create a strange and other-wordly feel where the viewer is caught in an atmosphere that feels almost real, almost to beautiful. The artificial vision serves as the backbone and strongest point in this piece. I have to say i was mesmerized by the incredible cinematography. However, the ending is particularly trite and obvious, and leaves you disappointed. Timothy Olyphant is convincing, however Rebecca Gayheart leaves something to be desired, but perhaps this was the objective. Nevertheless, the vision in this short is a masterpiece, an uncomfortably glossy almost too perfect bridge between the virtual and the real.
