Life makes sense when you're famous!, 15 August 2015
Author: ( from United States

This short film is a strange one. I don't get it. I only watched this short film and others on the "American Breakdown" DVD. I have to say it is forgettable about life and fame in Los Angeles, California. The film about a car accident and meeting famous people don't make sense to me. I thought the accident would have been better if the driver and victim had more of a relationship. I didn't get the ending at all. Perhaps the film was done by a film student who put too much in this short. The short has promise at times but falls short on delivery. I barely recognized anybody in this short film. I wonder what the director and writer were thinking about it in making this film.
