Storyline

Could drinking coffee be against the law? A guy named Rickie, who looks a little down at the heel, says he's read that drinking 60 cups of coffee will kill a man.

Quirky Short
27 August 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A man hears that if a human being consecutively drinks sixty cups of coffee this will lead to death . He walks in to a diner and tries to put this to the test

Written by Robbie McCallum and directed by David Andrew Ward this quirky short film has self fulfilling prophecy written all over it . By this I mean that it will become an established fact that if you drink 60 cups of coffee then you'll drop dead even though there's not the slightest piece of scientific evidence for this . There is some recent evidence that people who drink more than four cups of coffee a day have slightly shorter lifespans than those that don't but there might be a number of other factors involved in this . I was also slightly puzzled why someone wants to put a theory to the test to find out if there's any truth does so in an anonymous manner , especially if it might cost them their life . If this was you wouldn't at least call a local newspaper where you might get paid ?

Regardless of the problems of plausibility of the scenario it's the development of a short premise which is important and here it is developed very well by the production team . It's well directed , acted , edited and perhaps the most impressive aspect is the music by Michael Floreale
