Storyline

Eighty-five year old Eldridge Von Waistcoat sits dejected on his couch, feathers floating about his destroyed apartment. Something seems odd about the motion of the feathers, until we realize that everything is moving in reverse. As the film progresses, Eldridge is revealed to be the source of the devastation - we watch his fit of destructive anger as his destroyed apartment re-forms itself in his hands. All of his possessions and objects of affection transform from rubble back into their original state until the apartment is restored. Only at the close of the film, as Eldridge unfolds a crumpled note, do we learn the reason for his tantrum - a bittersweet, comic twist that explains not only his actions, but all of those feathers as well.

An okay experiment...
19 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very odd short film because it actually starts at the end and in slow motion the film is reversed so you can see what led him to such a huge temper tantrum. At the beginning, the apartment is a total mess--practically everything is destroyed. And as the film rolls, the room undestroys itself and the man appears to be putting everything back together. So why did he do all this and why did you spend what seems like a long time waiting? Well, the final punchline just didn't cut it--it just wasn't that satisfying. Watching this film is like waiting for Santa--only to be given socks and underwear! Now this doesn't mean the film is without merit--it's okay for a change of pace and it's only 5 minutes of your life.
