Storyline

After the death of his son, a hired killer struggles to escape the haunts of a lifetime of sin. Now asked to kill another man's wife, Alexander Poversky tries to hold onto what's left of his sanity as he spirals downward into a never-ending nightmare, making it increasingly difficult to stomach his chosen profession. Each death has become a tragedy, a tragedy followed by an obituary, an obituary with a name and a past. A name and a past for Alexander, he only wishes to forget. Written by Anonymous

A motion picture that works on every level
17 February 2007 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

NECROLOG, a dramatic short by Steven Addair, relies as much upon cinematography as it does upon story—as much upon editing as it does upon acting. Necrolog is a complete motion picture that establishes a setting so tactile, and a mood so enveloping, that it could probably hold its own without actors. Lucky for us, though, Steven Addair included them.

Taras Michael Los—an actor who understands that the moments between dialogue are at least as important as the moments during—stars as Alexander Poversky, an assassin whose past deeds are haunting him. Poversky is hired to kill another man's wife (played by Sara Hatfield with a quiet intensity that matches Los's). As Poversky's mental state decays little by little, he finds himself unsure whether to kill his target or save her life.

With only a six-person crew by his side, and a Canon XL1 in his hands, Steven Addair put together a motion picture that works on every level. With his apparent skill as a writer, director, cinematographer, and editor, Mr. Addair undoubtedly has a long, successful career ahead of him.
