A little clever thing
14 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Cutting Room" was shown on IFC as part of one of its short film collections. It's a perfect fit for the channel - hip, funny, smart, and stylish.

The idea for "The Cutting Room" is very clever - there's a trailer in Hollywood where characters go when they get cut out of movies and plays and books. The film looks at how a character from an action film comes to realize this fate when he meets four other characters who have been similarly cut.

The post-titles mention Dogme 95 (they also mention a few other things, which must be some sort of hip) and the film is indeed made true to those tenets, complete with shaky cameras and wacky angles.

It's a fun little film and worth looking for if you have IFC.
