Well conceived short. Great marriage of cinematography and the craft of writing.
1 September 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This short deals with a severely critical writing teacher whose undiplomatic criticism extends into his everyday life. When he learns why that's not a good idea, we learn a bit about the beautiful craft of writing that he's been lecturing on.
