Charming, witty, fun piece bound to launch more than a few careers!
25 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

APPLE JACK is a gem among the myriad of short-films that usually tour the

international festival circuit. Hopefully, this surprisingly refreshing original will fare better than its typical counterparts, garnering award-nominations across the board. With an ensemble cast that maximizes a contained story with larger than life implications, Whiting's directorial debut combines impressive writing with marvelous artistry.

Though major story-points pass quickly, Whiting successfully marries complex

voice-over with backstory and sepia-toned imagery. Visual effects are flawless, seamlessly woven with well-conceived frames. Piece garners high production

value from minimal locations. Casting couldn't be better. Overall, a masterpiece that's bound to become a cult classic, achieving critical acclaim on multiple fronts.
