A slick multi-layered period piece of semi-debauchery
23 June 2013 | by (Arlington, VA USA) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure what's driving all the low ratings of this very well-crafted period drama. I don't want to give away plot details, so I'll comment on the Director's approach. The story line is somewhat convoluted and one needs to pay close attention to the setup and relationships between the characters. There's lots of strange tension about with plenty of unanswered questions and subplots and other goings-on that makes one wonder about plot structure. I found this charmingly mysterious -- the vagueness seemed to be necessary to build up to the short's conclusion. Perhaps a bit overwrought, Glasses had very high production values, excellent editing and sound; I thought the acting seemed appropriate and professional.
