A new vision of spirituality
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.
