Amazing performances and script
6 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's no wonder this has been accepted to so many festivals, including Sundance, where I saw it first. The nuanced performances of Bryan Farrell Wilson, Raymond Trang, and an incredibly layered script by Tze Chun make this one of my favorite short films. So much happens in a jam-packed 10 minutes, it's hard to imagine this as a short film; even as it is an incredibly self contained piece- not a pared-down version of a feature. The editing is smart and complex, but simple in it's integrity. I looked up the name to be sure and the editor, Anna Boden, is indeed the producer of Half Nelson, another great film, so her sense of story and story-telling bleeds through. Too many shorts try to be ambitious by sending a message or teaching a lesson, but Windowbreaker is a commentary on racial-relations and does send a message, without jamming it down the viewer's throats. This is definitely a must see film, with a great ending!!!
