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.
