Student film-type of of project: good for what it is
My rating is what it is given that this is very much a student quality film. It's a beginner's short, and for that, I think it's good. The cinematography was interesting, though I wondered if there was a shortage of footage (some repetition seemed mainly just to fill out the length of the 6-minute song). I really did like the use of color, and a few editing choices. And of course I'm extremely biased given that Tarantino's in it. The various settings (cuts between the hotel room and the mirror scenes) felt a bit disjointed. But the choppy, home-video feeling to the cuts was good: it worked well for this setting. And unlike the previous reviewer, I did like the song. It was mellow, but there was definitely a humorous edge to it too, especially within the lyrics. The statue--again, it was a little overused--was still a nice--and fun--little symbol. And the silhouette shots of the kids with the kite at the beginning and end were fitting. Overall, a good short. I'd recommend checking it out, especially if you're a huge Tarantino buff (the kind bent on seeing everything this man has ever had anything at all to do with. cough.).
