better than the average short film
27 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a short film that has been made by someone so obviously qualified to direct features. Photography, music, editing and story are so tight and so appropriately used for GREAT comedic effect, I can't wait to see what Mr. Tsuchida plans to do next (something about Haiku and Spam, I think). It's five minutes of surreal comedy about a guy who tragically loses a roommate - Think along the lines of the drummers in "Spinal Tap" - only to get another one who can "kill people with his bare hands." Only shortcoming is it could have gone a bit longer, but at least it doesn't overstay its welcome, unlike some films. Depending on where you look on the web, you should be able to download it for free. It's worth looking for.
