Strange but Fun
dan-1315 from United States
16 May 2011
I came across this short film directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and
starring Carla Gugino and Eric Stoltz (and other well-known actors) on
a DVD of short films called Wholphin DVD magazine. Not only was it the
best of the bunch, but had it been longer, it would have been
indistinguishable from a pro film and good enough to be released.
Totally professional look and feel. Also it gave an excuse for Carla to
sing rock and roll and Joseph to play drums (as he did on Saturday
Night Live) as well as direct.
The film is based on a short story by Elmore Leonard, and Stoltz is an
insurance investigator looking into the suspicious circumstances
surrounding Carla's mansion burning down. Scenarios and theories go
back and forth in a battle of wits in a modern-day film noir. As I said
in the summary, it's a strange but fun film.
