Really good, but really short...
23 September 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

If you want to watch it, it's on you tube. It was good, I read it's a psychological film for co-dependent relationships, so it makes its point. There is not much to say about performances, you gt the picture, you get convinced, especially from Willie Garcon, as he is the one who panics. Misha Collins is also convincing, very calm, as he needs to be. I liked it, the feeling and the message it passes, but if I were to make one film like that, I would have made it at least 7 minutes long. The beginning of the film is a little weak, I thought it needed more preparation before getting to the point, which is the co-dependent relationship between the man hanging and the man holding the rope. Maybe they could show Misha waiting for a longer time, or show something more about Willie. Also, I thought the people passing with the car should either be off, or more involved. All in all, a good film!
