"Everything Goes" is an understated gem!
6 January 2005 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Flickerfest 2005.

Most of the short films I've seen recently have been slick, snappy and ultimately rather empty headed. But not this one. "Everything Goes" is a simple, beautifully executed featurette about the careless way in which people can destroy good relationships and nurture destructive ones.

Most of the film's meaning is sub-textual, but you don't have to be an intellectual to enjoy it! Even though the film is only twenty minutes long, there is great detail in Hugo Weaving and Abbie Cornish's characterizations, as well as richness and clarity in Andrew Kotatko's screenplay and direction.

I can see why "Everything Goes" won Best Short Film at the IF Awards in 2004 - it actually speaks to its audience without pretension or condescension. Imagine that!
