A movie you don't mind waking up next to.

this pulp noir masterpiece recalls the best work of bunuel and lynch,
with a tongue-in-cheek attitude that transcends irony, attaining a new
type of earnestness in the process. Esmail creates the paradigm for
metacinema in the new millennium. Plus it's mad funny and the lead
actress is hot. In short, this is one of the best short films ever
made, right up there with that one in the room with the camera and
nothing's in the room and it's experimental. Exceptionally
well-directed by the as yet unknown Sam Esmail, who, like Shakespeare,
may or may not exist. His vision is clear, and he directs this material
with an easy confidence that makes this movie badasssss. This boy
Esmail is nice, hoping he runs things in '05.
