An amazing short about madness
4 October 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Aside from being perhaps a bit too obvious in making Edward a postal employee, this was an exceptional film about madness and isolation in a crowd. While everyone at work seems to realize that Ed is odd and a misfit, they don't comprehend the depth of his madness. While others see him as daydreaming or slacking off, Ed is listening to an imaginary girlfriend and his contact with reality is diminishing rapidly. Ultimately, it all ends in a sad, though a bit unexpected finale.

What makes this film really work is the quality of the production. Exceptional direction, writing, production values and acting really make this film shine. It was nice to see character actors like Irwin Keyes and Bill Cobbs on hand to make the film that much better.

While I am sure that many might see the film as a surrealistic film or with some deeper symbolism, to me it's much simpler. The film is about insanity, as Ed is clearly schizophrenic and the voices, though so real to him, are imaginary. See it and see what you think.
