The funniest short I've ever seen!
2 February 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I've had the privilege of seeing "Channeling Alphonse" TWICE at festivals. I first caught it at the NYC Midnight Movie Madness last year, and again this past January at Tromadance in Park City. It left the audience holding their guts both times. It tells the shocking story of a Catholic school girl (a doe-eyed Aliza Finley -- a lovable cross between Tatum O'Neal and one of the Gelflings from "The Dark Crystal") who gets possessed by a black sex offender/pimp from the 70s. It's offensive, sexually deviant and uproariously hilarious. The last shot rivals "Citizen Kane." Kudos to Peter Atencio for his subtle direction, Blair Franklin for his inspired voice over and to Jeremy Catalino for his fractured soul and glass-cutting dialogue (see also Catalino's mind-bending sci-fi short, "Bobby Loves Mangos," available on Atomfilms.com -- another brilliant stunner). A great effort all around. If there is a God, someone will inflate this baby into a feature.
