Horrible even for a student film
13 June 2006 | by (2 hours north of Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Being a Peter Gabriel fan I decided to see this short film. It reminds me of a horrible Atom.com movie. Claimed as a student film with industry favors pulled, I wonder if they were the same favors pulled for Breck Eisners horrible Sahara.

I saw more talent in the 1926 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon drawn in pen and ink on paper than this film.

Thank goodness Cantor decided against releasing the film on his website (as wired reported) or he may never have been accepted for the job that gave him the Oscar nod.

This reminds me why they call student films student films.
