"She's So Cold" is a psychological musical noir drama which takes place at a government office set in a dystopian future. The request of a mysterious woman (Robin Reck) to view the videotaped confession of a madman (Angel Connell) sets off fierce gossip among three office clerks (Jeff Corveau, Robert Jodka, and Eric Scheiner) over the nature of the woman's relationship with said madman and the woman's deceased sister (Zenobia). When the woman abruptly leaves the office after listening to the taped confession, she accidentally leaves behind a photograph. When found by the clerks, said photograph hints at further complications suggested by their gossip - including intimations of incest, murder, and necrophilia. Written by
Martha Morgan (Robin Reck) reacts to the taped confession of Zeno (Angel Connell) in the viewing room with a variety of emotional responses concluding with her tearful breakdown. During the shooting of the scene, Reck looked at a blank screen and listened to the Rolling Stones' song 'She's So Cold' while writer/director Connell coached her off camera to react to certain cues in the song which they had constructed during preproduction rehearsals. Her performance was created in only one take. See more »
When we first see the clerks in the master shot of the office, the Assistant Clerk (Eric Scheiner) stands away from the Head Clerk (Bob Jodka). This moment is quickly followed by a close up of the Head Clerk's reaction in the foreground while in the background we see the Assistant Clerk standing beside the Head Clerk. After the close up, the next cut reveals the Assistant Clerk once again standing away from the Head Clerk. See more »
Who would believe you were a beauty indeed when the days get shorter and the nights get long? When the light fades and the rain comes, nobody will know when you're old. When you're old, nobody will know that you were a beauty. A sweet, sweet beauty. A sweet, sweet beauty but stone, stone cold!

After seeing Angel Connells excellent "Stocking Stuffers" I had to see this film. Although Connell made this one first it is even better with superb direction by Connell and excellent performances everyone involved and especially Robin Reck and Connell himself. Although the subject matter may not be to everyone's taste (I won't go into a plot summery), the movie is quite riveting and holds your attention like few I have seen. The movie is shot on film and it look great, especially the middle section that is shot in high contrast black and white and includes some great dolly and crane work. This is a short film you will not soon forget. Connell has a unique vision that is unlike any other director of independent films I know of. His work is also highly entertaining. See this if you can.
