A well crafted short ., 21 July 2008
Author: st-shot from United States

Neatly dressed in white shirts and ties bible thumpers comb the neighborhood in search of converts, offering spiritual salvation. They are mostly met with veiled contempt as they go from door to door but one of them, Malcolm, has developed a carnal situation with a married woman. He naturally keeps it from his superiors who frown at one on one guidance sessions but becomes undone when she suddenly breaks it off.

Writer director Peter Templeman immediately imbalances the viewer with his opening scene that poses a series of questions and then moves this short along in a breezy comic pace with dark undertones. Templeman displays a real knack for economy of editing and framing as he moves the pieces of the film's puzzle into place in the film's brief running time revealing only clues as to the intention of the film's characters and ultimate destination. Ably assisting Templeman's deft construction is Thom Campell as the nebbish but disturbing Malcolm. Joyless with a constant expression of disapproval and now heavily conflicted he keeps you guessing on how this thing will end.
