Having seen this film through several stages of its creation, I still
find myself intrigued and fascinated by the unique interpretation of
the classic story. The setting of modern Vancouver, complete with a
wide ranging cast of characters, gives it a realism that cannot be
captured in the musical format ("Man of La Mancha"). John Taylor's
performance is intense and I found myself equally frightened and
embarrassed for him. Tom Braidwood balances this in a sturdy and
sometimes sad performance, complete with a hopeful, uplifting (yet
subtly so) ending.
Short films are wonderful, and Lance Peverely has a gift for filling the limited time with a complete, well-rounded story. I recommend this film for any intelligent person who can appreciate the complexity of the tale.
