"Artsy" without pretense
17 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had the distinct pleasure of reviewing the gorgeous and talented Ms. Pinn's directorial debut a few weeks ago and let me begin by saying she is a major talent both in front of, and behind, the camera! "cathARTic" is a spellbinding trip down the darker side of art in several mediums that eventually converge in climax of this well-crafted, compelling short film. Frequent cohorts, Brandon Slagle and Pinn really seem to wallow in the dark depravity that permeates the atmosphere of this grim tale and their performances, as well as that of the rest of the cast, really shine. Definitely check this out, it's art about art, without the snobbery and "tripping over the subtext" that prevails in other short films in this genre.
