Intense and intelligent
24 February 2005 | by (Oxford, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I caught this unusually well-made, chilling short film on Channel 4. I was gripped from the start, and being a big fan of Brian Cox, I started fumbling for a blank VHS.. I'd never heard of this movie! The look and intensity of the film, the soundtrack and the actors all felt like a new feature, so I was surprised and a little disappointed that it turned out to be a short.

Looking it up online, "Get the Picture" is described as "a ten minute pilot for the feature "Fourth Wall", written and directed by Rupert Wyatt. Lets hope the wonderful Cox is a part of it - if this is a pilot, I think we can hope for great things in the feature. Cox has recently graced many American movies - Bourne Identity & Bourne Supremacy, Troy, 25th Hour - it would be great to see him in a gritty new British film.
