Well-Made but Rather Boring
25 April 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

From the Drain (1967)

** (out of 4)

David Cronenberg's second short film is set in the future where two men discuss a variety of things. The two were a part of some sort of war and they discuss their lives while sitting in a tub surrounded by drains.

For the most part I thought this was an extremely well-made short but at the same time I found the dialogue to be quite boring and this here made the entire film seem slow and way too long even at just twelve minutes. On a technical level the film is impressive as Cronenberg does a nice job with the direction and we've also got some good editing and a nice score. The performances are what you'd expect from a film like this but it's just the dialogue doesn't work and it really brings the film down.
