No left-wing politics and no PC moralizing, but a briskly-paced, watchable story.
Most short films have a surprise plot-twist, and so it is with this one too. Unlike with many "Twilight Zone" episodes, it is practically impossible to predict DB's ending. It might be a little far-fetched, but this is an unpretentious short so no need to get overly nit-picky about details.
The visual style is good (although the trendy blue-dominated look is getting a little old), and the plot moves at a brisk pace from the very start. You might think it'd be obvious that no time is wasted in a short, but you'd be surprised with the kind of laughable padding that lesser talents, i.e. no-talents, place in their pathetic little productions...
There is only one proper hint given to the viewer that the main character is mentally unstable: what was at first an annoying (because apparently illogical) scene when Danny bumps into a middle-aged passer-by, turns out to be the one clue that something isn't quite right in his yuppie cranium.
