Just beachy
17 August 2019 | by ripplinbucketheadSee all my reviews

After a man robs a casino disguised as a woman (the *man* was disguised as a woman, not the casino, silly!), he escapes to the beach with his co-hort, whom he kills. In the process, he is shot in the arm. He wanders around the beach until he finds a shack. There he meets an interesting recluse who holds the key to his future.

This was a weird one. 3/4 of it feels like the middle act of a movie, but then has a conclusive ending. The man in the shack also has a secret that's revealed at the end, but it's not so much revealed as "duh"-inducing. Still, an interesting, well performed, fairly entertaining short.
