Great short film, 24 January 2006
Author: travelswithpharmacy from United States

This film is very entertaining and manages to have a heart, as well. It's a comedy that has deeper meaning as well. It stars Kevin Pollak as a psychologist who finds a new way to deal with his patients after he receives some unexpected news. Our Time is Up is laugh-out-loud funny -- I saw it in a film festival, and there were a lot of laughs from the audience. Besides Mr. Pollak, the performances (from the actors playing the psychologist's patients and gardener) are great -- don't miss Hurley from Lost! He is a hoot. I have seen a LOT of short films in festivals, some of which can be great and some of which really aren't. This rises above the rest in terms of picture quality, performances, writing, et cetera. Definitely check it out if you have a chance.
