Best Short I've Ever Seen
27 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short at the Austin Film Festival and although there was another very good short in the section it screened with, none could really compare to Deface. I'm used to many of the shorts, even at a festival like Austin, being a little rough around the edges. But this was really polished. Beautifully shot, acted, and directed. The story is also extremely moving and left me thinking about how stifling it would be to live in a society without even the most necessities (i.e. food) or the most basic rights (i.e. freedom of expression). In addition to the film being terrific, the director was a really nice guy. I aspire to make a short this good someday.
