Well done, but why does everyone usually seem to wear white in these films?
3 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This appears to be a sci-fi short, though the exact time period in which it is set is completely uncertain. All you do know is that there are warnings each morning to wear protective gear and people are afraid to touch or be touched.

The main character is an unnamed woman who goes through the same routine each day. However, on one day she makes eye contact with a man who walks past her on the way to work and she is filled with a desire to touch him--nothing necessarily sexual--just feel his skin. when she confides to a coworker, the reaction is about the same if you asked someone to eat glass!!

While this is all mildly interesting and the film is competently made, I am left asking myself one very important question: in sci-fi movies, why do they so often have everyone wearing white? Aside from a few exceptions (such as the space suits in primary colors in 2001 and the original Star Trek uniforms), most sci-fi seems to show the future as all white and sterile (the best example, THX-1138). While to some extent this makes sense in A STOLEN MOMENT, I still don't think making everything white is necessary and in fact it would make much more sense if the future holds colors--not just white. Just a thought.
