The Brothers Bloom are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they've decided to take on one last job - showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
I went to school with the Steve Yedlin and Rhian Johnson, the filmmakers, and it was great to see this project come together over the course of a semester. This 16mm B/W short is full of very funny moments. The camera work and editing are ingenious and something to marvel at, especially given the fact that the project was made on a practically non-existent budget in film school.
