Good good stuff.
22 July 2004 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Really well made and powerful short film. Incredibly well edited, and top notch direction. A very solid piece of work for a directorial debut. HIghly recommended for anyone that enjoys a good short. The score was phenomenal, and although the script was predictable it still maintained steady emotional impact for it's viewers. The cinematography and general look of the film seemed appropriate for the storyline and mood of the piece. The desaturated colors and bleached bypass on the print worked. The performances are what ultimately carry the piece. Miguel and Jose were very believable as a father and son pair.

Good Good Stuff.
