And the point of this was.......??
4 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ten Minute Movie is a very professional looking short film. It has some famous faces and appears to have some financial backing. The directing, unfortunately, is rather bland. The fact that the main character talks to camera for the duration means any skill the director may have had is overshadowed by the breaking of this 4th wall, as well as the over-energetic lead performance and erratic scene shifting.

The story of this film isn't much really. An actor is shoved in front of the camera and is told he can make any kind of movie he wants in ten minutes. It's kinda silly and no plot actually ever develops, apart from the lead trying to get a woman in to bed. However, rather strangely he is more intent on getting her to admit to being a virgin (a trait he has imposed on her, being the controller of the film) than he is with sleeping with her. I didn't get these scenes and they were really drawn out as well. It was a bore to watch and literally as every frame went by I could help but wonder what on earth the point of this film was. After ten minutes the credits roll and absolutely nothing has happened. Who knows why a 'famous' actor would appear in this and who knows why anyone would even financially back this film in the first place. Your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps the director was a friend of John Simm's??

Whatever the story behind how this film got made, it really shouldn't have been and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
