brilliant collection
16 June 2003 | by (Midlands, UK) – See all my reviews

a brilliant collection of short films that range in length from 3mins to 27 mins. it includes works from established directors and upcoming talent. demonstrates differing approaches to direction/photography/writing. all films include commentaries by the directors.

personal favorites are About a Girl by Brian Percival and Gasman by Lynne Ramsay. i'm looking forward to seeing more of their work
