Well Directed But Hardly Compelling
21 February 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

GET THE PICTURE is a film written and directed by Rupert Wyatt . Unfortunately it's a short film which doesn't do the subject matter much justice . Two war correspondents Harry and Jake are driven in the back of a truck to a village that has been bombed by rebel forces . Is it Afghanistan or Iraq ? It's certainly a Muslim country with a few dodgy special forces types from the Delta Force or SAS glimpsed in the background but we never find out for sure . Nor do we find out the rather abrasive interaction going on between the correspondents and the soldiers , or whether the captured " rebels " are guilty or innocent

I don't want to give the impression that GET THE PICTURE is awful - It's not , it does contain scenes with great tension , but it is like very many short movies lacking any type of context and feels more like a segment of a feature length film . It is well directed and look forward to seeing more of Mr Wyatt's work in the future as long as he gets someone to write him a hundred page script
