This tops my list of best short films of the last decade, and I have seen many. If you have any personal investment in film-making, you owe it to yourself to track down a screening or copy. That's all you really need to know but I am required to enter ten lines here. Let me put it this way: the short film is a notorious paradox of form... too short to take on large issues, yet instantly disposable if it doesn't. Many good shorts make the grade by being entertaining in the moment, offering a great twist, or finding one terrific element to command word of mouth. "Pop Foul" is the rarest of rare short films, managing the compelling depth, beauty, and insight achieved by the occasional feature, and almost never by a short.
