Great Short
19 February 2003 | by (Columbus, Oh) – See all my reviews

Ghost Reader is one of the best shorts that I have ever seen. It has a wonderful sci-fi plot that takes place in a future where people cannot read, but rather have machines or "Ghost Readers" read for them. This has gone on for so long that people do not even believe that humans are capable of reading. The film is stunning, with great music, a wonderful opening title sequence and great camera work. I mean some of the shots were unbelievable. It is also very well acted. Personally, I think that Jon Osbeck was great in it, but everyone really did a wonderful job. Overall, this film was great. I really wish there were more movies like this out there.
