Smart, professional and funny
14 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A mysterious DJ is sent back in time with his decks to prevent a car accident in which a cyclist is killed. Using his decks to freeze and replay time, the DJ identifies the root cause and goes about changing it. However by doing this he sets another chain of events in motion, which he then has to rectify but the more he tries to put things right, the worse they get.

Terminator (minus the nudity and killing) and Primer are run together here to produce an amusing and clever short film featuring a DJ trying to change the future for a group of people hanging around on a bust street. The concept is (relatively) simple with someone trying to change events to prevent a future calamity, however it is imaginative and amusing throughout. The DJ is a great character who plays out the scene in front of him and I liked the way he played out his frustration at how things were going. As writer and director Winans deserves the credit for coming up with the concept but also delivering it so clearly and entertainingly.

Visually the film is impressive. Really clear images with good colour but also structured in such a way that all the shots work whether being played backwards or forwards. I'm not totally sold on the way the film depicts the DJ working overtime but other than that it was spot on. Overall an amusing and cleverly delivered short film that is well worth a look for being funny, smart, professional and punchy.
