Amost a perfect 10
7 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Scott Smith's Ten, a middle-aged man breaks every single commandment in rapid succession.

The film is very thoughtfully crafted. There isn't an extraneous detail, and each prop, each line is carefully chosen for maximum effect. In just a few minutes, the film evokes disgust, amusement and horror. In short(pun intended),the plot, writing and direction are quite brilliant.

The only flaw of the film is the director's confusion of the ten commandments with the seven deadly sins. Once the viewer figures out he really means commandments, the film has meaning beyond a vignette of a morning after scene.

The pace is so fast, I did have to go back and watch a second time.
