Great character development
3 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film is about the encounter and the subsequent erotic tension between a hunky doorman and a college guy.

Though "Doorman" is short and low budget, it is quite stylishly shot. A memorable scene is when the doorman has internal struggle in his staff room, the close up shot produces a vertigo inducing effect which is powerful and suited to the scene's atmosphere.

The character development is also done well. In the space of just 17 minutes, I have grown sympathetic of Diego, and I dislike Garrett. Diego is a convincing character, his fascination with Garrett, the subsequent confusion are portrayed well. The acting is great, the tension between the two characters are presented engagingly. I enjoyed this short film.
