I am the first to criticize an art film for being too, well, arty. This movie has a brilliant, original idea for a short film, and its minute budget doesn't show one bit. I had the pleasure of watching "Kitchen Sink" in one of my video production classes. Some of the films the professor showed us simply put me to sleep, but this one really caught my attention and interest. It's disturbing, but that's its intention. This is creepier than most horror movies, of past or present. Even the effects don't appear low-budget. When the woman was shaving the man and cut him with the razor by accident, I was able to feel his pain. Usually, I think novice filmmakers enjoy using black-and-white, because it looks sophisticated. Sure, a good movie is a good movie with or without color, but you can't deny that the use of color can help. Just see the brilliant use of color in Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange." In the case of this movie, I felt the black-and-white fit the tone. And the great score helped top off the film's creepy aura. So if you feel the same way I do about most art films, check this one out. Trust me, this one's actually entertaining. This is the kind of film that gives inspiration to us aspiring young filmmakers. It shows that it is possible to make an original, imaginative film with two actors, one setting and a very low budget. (8 out of 10)
