One of the Most Interesting Shorts I've Ever Seen
9 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Adicolor Yellow" or just "Yellow" is one of the short films written and directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp, and I found it to be quite impressive. Done in his typical mockumentary style, the story follows an android that develops enough intelligence to escape its creators and live among society for some 18 months, while being hunted by those creators. While there are obvious similarities to other AI movies including I Robot and Bladerunner, it's Blomkamp's delivery that makes this short film special. In a span of five minutes, we learn everything we need to know about Yellow's development and also see him casually interacting with others. Without ever saying a word, he's believable but also somehow sympathetic and likable. By the end, when he's confronted by security forces sent to retrieve him, we're more attached to him than we are to many heroes in full-length films.

Blomkamp knows how to add all the right touches to his films, from slowing down the frame rate to blocking out the sound and adding just the right music instead. The entire short film was rich and alive and believable and heartfelt, and something I would love to see developed in a full-length feature.
