Good short film
17 July 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The look and feel of the movie is unique and bizzare. Not a lot happens in 'Tomorrow's Bacon"- with most of big stuff occurring off screen. Also, some people seem to think that the ending is ambigiuos. IT'S NOT! It's totally clear that the older woman has stolen the knife in order to finally put an end to a hatefilled, loveless marraige. The actress who played the waitress is perfect. She has just the right balance of wit and endearing qualities. If you can find a showing of this, check it out.
