2 May 2010 | by (Austin) – See all my reviews

I can't describe this movie too much, because anything will give it away. It's a very short film, but there's ridiculous amounts of depth to it.

The entire movie is an exercise in interpretation and inference. I saw it this weekend at Texas Frightmare Weekend and got to talk to the director one on one after. The DVD contains two other shorts, and they are solid, but nothing like this movie that forces you to tell the story to yourself spark your imagination.

I could never have guessed what I was getting into when my buddy insisted we go see his screening, but I am still totally excited that we did.

If Rodrigo Gudino has this kind of vision and creativity, he'll soon be listed as one of the greats. Whether or not you like this or his other two movies is completely your opinion, but give it a shot, because I guarantee that it will be different. This day and age, that is hard to come by.
