I especially enjoyed the dialog between the hit man and Clarissa. It was dark (which worked well with the setting) but very relevant and creative, it almost became poetry.
Sidney's "awakening" was not trite or overdone, but consistent and believable considering the tone and progression of the film. This short film did a wonderful job of telling a complete story. Unlike a lot of short films, this one had a distinct beginning, middle and end rather than being a short part of a longer piece. I look forward to seeing more from this filmmaker.
