Brilliantly Dark
24 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I didn't really know what to expect when I came across this short film as part of the YouTube comedy week, I expected it to be about Michael Cera awkwardly trying to follow a specific love interest. (Which, I guess there are some of these themes).

However, when watching Gregory Go Boom I couldn't stop admiring the excellent shot composition, and the rather surreal, bare locations. Additionally, the soundtrack is incredibly chilling and I found myself on edge with concern about what was going to happen to this fragile character. Furthermore, without revealing any spoilers, the end was just haunting and quite disturbing.

Overall, Micheal Cera's versatile and bitter portrayal of a paralysed character is a real tense watch and I would significantly recommend it. 10/10!
