Just a couple of days ago, I happened to see the most recent DVD version of Guillermo Del Toro's CRONOS. Included in the supplements was a short he'd made, GEOMETRIA. I agree with the previous commenter on this page: I've never been very good at math- let alone geometry-, so the plight of the kid in the movie was one I could relate to. His solution to his problem was... inspired, to say the least. The bubblegum-popping demon was hilarious. In an interview also included in the supplements, Del Toro mentions the influence of filmmakers like Mario Bava and Dario Argento; the color palette of GEOMETRIA (not to mention everything he's done professionally) certainly bears this out. If you're a fan of Del Toro's, or a fan of well-made horror shorts, check out GEOMETRIA.
