At Least It's Self Contained
2 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A man with absolutely nothing in life walks along an American street and finds his luck about to change . I suppose karma might have something to do with this because he does look exactly like Jesus , especially if he was played by Willem Dafoe . In fact not reading the credits until after seeing his short I was totally and absolutely convinced Dafoe might be playing the vagabond here such is the physical similarity between him and Tracy Feith . I'm guessing director Phillip Sansom might be aware of this and take note that he goes out of his way to not have the vagabond speak just in case the audience notice that it's not Dafoe's very distinctive rasping voice speaking

As it stands ONE MAN'S LOSS is one of those heart warming tales illustrating that one mans loss is another mans success and it's not difficult to see whose side the audience are meant to be on so that we feel no sympathy for the loser . I did think the film was a little bit too simplistic and when I stopped to think about it could have been developed as one of those Benny Hill type sketches where Benny gets the girl and winks to camera . That said at least this short feels genuinely self contained and isn't just a mere calling card
