One mans misery
20 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film about 5 years ago. I have been looking for a copy ever since.

This film is able to convey a mans sense of isolation and depression perfectly. The dialog is spot on. Will Bartlett(The Oatmeal)plays his part wonderfully.His voice is calming and adds some dark humor to the heavy,depressing vibe of the film. It is also very realistic. This man could be your neighbor or a co-worker. You never know.

I did see this on a VHS compilation and I think that even though it was a dubbed copy, it looked and sounded great. It might have even added to the experience. It has a classic look to it.

A very enjoyable short!
