Artistic or pretentious?, 31 October 2015
Author: Thomas ( from Berlin, Germany

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I am not sure which description fits this 4-minute movie better. "Despair" was written and directed by Alex Prager 5 years ago and some more short films followed in the years after this one. Sadly, I must say this one here did not make me curious about them, especially as they do not have a star like Golden Globe nominee Bryce Dallas Howard in them. Without them, this one here would have been even worse I'm sure. She elevated the forgettable writing and mediocre material in general. Not a good watch and only worth seeing for the biggest Bryce Dallas Howard fans out there. Not recommended, even if it's a decent watch visually. The story is just too weak. Thumbs down.
