Not quite so "awesome"
13 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

CODA is a short film about a young man in a prep school and an act of violence that shatters everything.

Technically speaking, CODA is a pretty well-made film--featuring excellent camera work, decent acting and a professional and polished look about it. In that sense, those who made it should be proud of it. However, the film isn't quite as awesome as some have said--mostly because the film never really seemed to gel. It was like they had a good idea for a film but didn't exactly know where to go with it or how to end the film. As a result, when the film was complete, I was left feeling disappointed.

If you'd like to see it, try picking up a copy of "Shorts!: Vol. 1" and then write a review. Perhaps I am missing something--you figure out for yourself if this is the case.
