Ben Willis is an art student who works the night shift several times a week at the Whitechapel Sainsbury's. He's clear about the arrangement: he trades his time for money - cashback, as he calls it. We meet his co-workers, Sharon, Barry, and Matt, and their supervisor, Jenkins. Ben's colleagues are good at wasting time, but Ben talks to us about how he makes his shift go faster: by imagining that time has stopped. We see this late-night world of drudgery through Ben's eyes, as time does indeed stop, and he can get out his sketch book. Written by
alright - i first watched the full length movie, and this prompted me to look up the original short movie. i was astonished to see the exact scenes from the full movie comprise this short length. initially i thought somehow these scenes were later integrated into the full length, but my thought is that the full length was probably already in post-production when someone decided to 'promote' the film by giving out this short version first (which is nothing bad).
it actually works as a short movie, but having seen the full one i cant really comment on it because it is like a trailer to the full movie - it has the essence of the main plot, but nothing more than a hint of the beautiful ideas and artwork of the full length movie.
i loved the full movie, watch it and probably you will like it too
10/10, which is how i vote for the full length movie :)
