Very creative and well done short film
2 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was at a film festival yesterday, and at around the midpoint of the screenings this little marvel started to play. From the beginning you can pretty much tell that this is your classic re-telling of the protagonist(Whether it be Johnny, God, or even Leela from Futurama), versus the devil. It's a classic story that people will continue to find new, creative ways to tell, and this film is what makes that very point stand out. I've never considered the possibility of the tournament being a basketball game, and then I thought to myself, why not? It makes perfect sense, it's modern, it's competitive, and it's used frequently in film, though 9/10 times it's an underdog story. This is like something you would see in The Boondocks, a distinct type of creativity and humor that is simply not matched by the mainstream television and movie industry. Not to say it's perfect, it is pretty predictable, you know exactly what's going to happen. Well... almost. The overall outcome is obvious, but some key parts of the ending are pretty damn funny and I did not see coming at all. Not to mention, the shots are so impressive, they're perfectly paced and choreographed, as well as being tons of fun to watch. As a future film student, I can say that this is the type of film that inspires me, the type of film that I stride to do even remotely as well as. A few of the short films in the festival were mediocre, and some just not very good. This was not one of them, I enjoyed this one so much, and I applaud everybody involved in it.
