Storyline

This unique short film follows the night of a young British insomniac named Jack, narrated almost hour by hour from a first hand perspective. You see what he sees, you feel what he feels, you experience the horrible delusions and the verge of insanity as he struggles to find the thinning line between reality and the subconscious.

Eerie and dreamlike cinematography that will pull you into the nightmare...
6 February 2003 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Have to be honest and say that I haven't seen many independent films, but I thought this one was very well done. The direction and cinematography were engaging without becoming a distraction. The angles, settings, and lighting used successfully created the nightmarish world in which the main character was trapped. Many haunting and memorable images from the film stick in your mind long after it's over (always a sign of a good director).
