Well done misery and wretchedness
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a well done movie that is also truly miserable and wretched.

The production values are excellent. The sound quality, the cinematography, the scripting, the dialog, the singing, the acting, and everything else technical or artistic are all spot on.

And it's a miserable and wretched experience to watch.

The portrayal of "a musical story exploring a damaged man's search for a connection in an interconnected world" doesn't even begin to describe just how ugly, soulless, and depressing the whole thing is.

As an exercise in how to "professionally craft a short film that was is miserable and wretched as possible" - this one takes the cake.

I would not recommend ever letting any heterosexual person see this film. Ever. Otherwise they'd all demand all gays be sent to "Conversion Therapy" for their own good.

And I'd think that most gays would find this film equally repulsive as well.

There are really no redeeming characters in it. Well, okay, perhaps one

  • the token het female friend of the two horribly dysfunctional gay


male leads who comments about how appalling their actions are. Beyond that, no.

Sitting through this film made my skin crawl and were it not paired with another film that I did want to see, I would've left the theater within minutes of this thing's starting.

Yeah, it was that miserable an experience.
