Up-and-coming sports reporter rescues a homeless man ("Champ") only to discover that he is, in fact, a boxing legend believed to have passed away. What begins as an opportunity to resurrect Champ's story and escape the shadow of his father's success becomes a personal journey as the ambitious reporter reexamines his own life and his relationship with his family.
Samuel L. Jackson,
I just watched "A funny thing happened at the Quick Mark" during last night's prelude to the South Side Film Festival. It was one of the last shorts shown during the first set, and it definitely received some of the best audience response of the night. I laughed SO hard at the antics in the short, of this guy who appears to be insane, and the thought processes he uses to come to the conclusions of what he should say and do next. Mr. Yarovesky wrote that "Some people would call it a dark comedy," and I'd have to agree. It deals with issues like insanity, violence and rape in such a way that is so ridiculous that you can't help but see the humor in it.
