You would not think that a movie about a racquetball game would be very interesting but this is one of the best short movies I saw at the Aspen short film festival.
Basically a man goes to play a game of squash against his boss...and it soon develops into a physiological mental game of lies, deceit, bluffs, wits, careers, goals, and challenges. It evolves into an intense physical game. The conversations goes for work, to competition, to life, to lovers, and is a game of good versus evil that metamorphosis from a friendly game into a struggle that brings out the best and worst aspects of each player.
The intense rivalry between each player gets you take sides and root for one of the players. This is an amazing film. You have to see it to understand what I mean. This film won an award for best writing at the Aspen short film festival in 2003. I'd give this a score of 9 out of 10.
