"Stocking Stuffers" is an experimental comedic short which illuminates through two brief anecdotes how a pair of pantyhose can become an object of desire whose seductive power can either compliment human sexuality - or commodify it. In the first half of the film, the man and the woman engage in sexy banter triggered, in part, by the pantyhose worn by the woman. In the film's second half, the Man and the Woman appear in three interlocking pantyhose commercials. The first half of the film posits in a suggestive way how an object of desire such as pantyhose can compliment human sexuality while the film's second half suggests in a satiric way how the same object of desire can commodify human sexuality.

Figured you'd be partied out by now.
Let's put it this way: the movie was the appetizer,
[he removes one of her shoes]
dining out was the main course,
[he removes her other shoe]
And you want desert?
Sure. But the only thing you've given me so far is a nightcap.
[he kisses her leg]
Call it a sample of things to come.

I rather liked the back and forth between the actors, not just the dialog but the body language as well. Somewhat surprised at how good the production qualities were. If there is a complaint it would be that I thought the concept could be expanded a bit and the running time extended appropriately. I understand the tendency nowadays to use zealous cutting to come up with a streamlined story to avoid losing the interest of the viewer, but sometimes it's good to take the viewer along for a bit of a journey and include some of the details. Provoking thoughts may not be as much in vogue as senseless violence and special effects, but it still has a place, especially in indie films like this. I'd like to see more from this producer.
