A question we need to ponder a bit more

Miguel Arteta's Are You The Favorite Person of Anybody? is a short to deeply contemplate not so much in what it provides us but how we could reply to the short film's central question. It stars John C. Reilly as a socially-awkward businessman with a clipboard asking passersby on the street "are you the favorite person of anybody?" and quickly following it up with "are you anybody's favorite person?" He gives them a list of stock-options found on typical standardized tests (IE: "very certain," "confident," "think so," etc). Despite clearly being a piece of fiction, the passersby respond with believable apprehension and confusion. One woman cites her ex-girlfriend with complete confident to the fact that she is her favorite person, however, with more contemplation, changes her answer from "very certain" to "confident." Arteta, whose short-hand filmography contains the very funny and underrated Cedar Rapids along with the quirky comedy Youth in Revolt, keeps the focus on Reilly, who retains his socially-awkward, sore-thumb quality and the question provides for unmistakable pondering on behalf of the viewer. Are you the favorite person of anybody and why?

Starring: John C. Reilly. Directed by: Miguel Arteta.
