What Happens When the Line Is Crossed
7 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

These days we act before we think and we don't really weigh the consequences of our actions. In Roadkiller, a slick salesman, played by Philip Davis, is on a long journey to a client's house. He stops at a roadside stand to get some food and is almost run over getting back to his car. He's dropped his only available relief from his hunger and mysteriously the shack from which he had purchased his meal closed. Disgusted, he continues on his way. After a few hours of driving, it's nightfall and he hasn't found anything to eat. He sees an unsuspecting badger crossing the road and runs it over. What ensues after that is a chain of events that make him think about running over the animal.

The cinematography is impeccable in this short film. The drive through the countryside and the evening shots were well done. The subject material is very to the point showing what carelessness and lack of thought can put one into a predicament. Although there was very little dialog, the actors had played their roles well. I would have liked to see more of this material, possible developed into a feature film to learn more about the character's relationships. It's a great short and worth checking into.
