This short probably has my favourite interpretation of God
12 November 2015 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I managed to come across this short by happenstance. Basically the plot is that an atheist wonders why so many people are lining up outside an external basement door. They are under the delusion that in that basement God is on the other end but the atheist goes in anyway but is skeptical. What happens is that it isn't a cult-y scam... More like some guy named Glenn Owen Dodds who tries to convince him that yes, he is God despite his eccentricities and instead gives him advice to follow. This short is a clever concept executed in a near-perfect manner. The guy playing God gets a couple of laughs and I like how he foreshadows the entire ending. I think my favourite part of the whole short is the part where the atheist wonders "Why are we here" after God proves himself by saying private things only he would know, God agrees and decides to join fingers not unlike the Michael Angelo painting and then says "Time's up" because of a five minute time limit, That is brilliant! I would say it is worth having a look at and I think this interpretation of God can be re-used. If you have about 8 minutes of free time, check it out.
