A man in a bloody shirt enters his apartment. He's Vesser. His phone rings; his friend Sam invites him to join them for dinner the next night to meet a woman newly hired at a local museum. Vesser accepts and at a restaurant the four enjoy conversation. She's Angela, the museum's new night cataloger; she describes a new artifact, an English head crusher. Vesser perks up. Dinner goes well even though Sam tries too hard to push Vesser and Angela together. Vesser offers to walk her home. They stop in an alley and kiss; she asks him what he's wearing around his neck. With some reluctance, he shows her. From there, it's a startling turn. Until that moment, have they been blind? Written by
I just saw this film on Ifilm. I am really impressed with the level of visual work that was done . The art direction, noir meets street fight , is really well crafted. The male friend in the restaurant is a real FIND! He absolutely took the show and put it in his pocket. The special effects were impressive too. There were some flaws, but they were overshadowed by their work in lighting and staging. The director almost uses shadow as a character , I can't wait to see what he could do with more time and presumably budget. I think that sometimes people don't really "get" the idea of a film like this. I don't know how the director feels, but I see it as a showcase for future work. Sure it needs to stand on it's own, and again there are flaws. But you can't help but see potential in this piece.
