Got A Light ?
17 November 2012 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I didn't realise that the John Maclean who wrote and directed this short was the same John Maclean from The Beta Band , a band from Scotland who I've only just fallen in love with several years after they'd split up . I thought maybe Maclean might have had made a musical soundtrack the most important aspect of this BAFTA award winning short movie but perhaps it'ss for the best that he didn't

As it stands this is a somewhat austere looking short film shot in black and white featuring Liam Cunningham and up and coming megastar Michael Fassbinder who play a couple of professional safebreakers who have to do a robbery in a room that will ring an alarm if any light is detected

I wasn't too keen on the pay-off because often this is what makes or breaks a short but I've a lot worse short films lacking the technical command the director has here . I would have preferred a reunion of The Beta Band though
