A new vision of spirituality

8/10
Author: glen-88 from United States
29 March 2006

How easily will the modern man of sorrow's give up his soul? The price is a steak. It's a quirky question that drives at the heart of this short film's theme.

Devon Gallegos, our silent protagonist, brings a sort of dirtied innocence to the film, any every man bumbler and though major dialogue may be missing from the film, Mr. Gallegos's presence and posturings more than make up for it.

Rising visionary Daniel Roemer has offered us a intelligent look of Webster's dance with the devil. What really catches my eye in the film is the simple yet gritty cinematography, from the gramaphone pull out to the final insane nightmare of the protagonist. More a cross between Fellini's Italian kitchen sink realism and Kubrick-esquire nightmare vision than what I'd expect from a new name like Roemer.

Keep your eyes open Hollywood. There's a new director on the block and he packs quite a punch.
