Odd but very likable
7 March 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very odd story and I must say I haven't seen another short film like this one! The film starts out with a guy sitting at a lane at the bowling alley. However, instead of bowling, he's just stalling--pretending to tie his shoes. It seems that he's been doing this for days. Obviously something is bothering him, but he doesn't want to talk about it. Finally, he talks to a friend and discloses that he caught his wife having sex with someone back by the pin setting machines. Because of this, he's feeling depressed and unable to do his life's passion--bowl. His psychological block is pretty serious, as he seems unable to reclaim his manhood by once again bowling. An interesting metaphor, huh?!

The film is a very dry comedy--not the sort you'd laugh out loud at, but one that is still darkly humorous. Apparently this was a student film for USC's film school and it speaks volumes about the folks who made it, as the film is quite engaging and well made.
