The Milkman is a nice little film.
9 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Milkman is a short film with a great deal of merit. It's quality is excellent in both filming and musical score. The camera work and framing shows a great deal of competency that is frequently missing with new directors.

The only real drawbacks are a slightly wooden performance by the actors and a lack of lighting. Due to these factors, the film seems to lack the mood which should be present in a film which relies on a character-driven study of a hit man. The story is well written, although predictable.

All in all, I rate it a 7. It's worth spending 15 minutes of your life on.
