User Reviews

Quality and storyline were excellent!
29 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a captivating film. I was thankful that the opportunity came my way to see this, which was pure luck really. At the last minute a friend invited me to the LA Festival at the Laemmle Sunset 5. This was the third Film Festival I've been too and will go ahead and add that the other festivals I did... Well they were sort of were hard to take. This one though I found invigorating and seeing this film SHUFFLE, was one of the reasons. First of all it felt very lush in quality and the storyline resonated for me. The way the story played out kept me involved and the photography was stunning. I would think it would be a trial to do a hit-man story in the short form without it stumbling into the typical stereotypes, which I so often see in regular full-length movies. I liked the characters and the acting was superb and very subtle and found small moments that were just damn good. It was a well-told story and I am happy to have tripped into it both literally/ figuratively.
