A Great Short
20 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not normally a fan of short films. It seems that the film makers feel so constrained by the time limit that they use only the most light-weight ideas or just use the time as an exercise in how handy they can be with a camera. But This is a Microphone is a horse of a different color. In its 15-minute running time, it works like a high-quality feature film. A smart, intense story-line about a guy who has been royally screwed by the bank where he used to work, leading to a major meltdown, and an unexpected conclusion that's full of heart. There is not a wasted moment, all of the characters are well-conceived, completely believable, and wonderfully played by a great bunch of actors. At short film festivals, this is the one to watch.
