A wonderful neo-noir short
6 November 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Caught this flick over at Beautiful lighting, a fitting score, and a well-developed script (surprising for a film which runs under 30 minutes). Stephen Jefferys is perfect as our protagonist and narrator. The recurring motifs (the clocks, the man ascending the stairs, the planes) throughout give the short a sense of cohesion. I don't want to reveal too much of the plot as part of the fun is discovering the mystery as it unfolds. But it does feature one of my favorite themes: the absence of goodness in a world desperate for heroes.

Congrats to Jim Cliffe and all the crew who worked on this project, the final product is a joy to watch.
