The perfect short subject
14 May 2002 | by panicwatcherSee all my reviews

The story is dramatic, funny and surprising. Most of the story is told through the expressions on the actors faces. Paul Lazar plays the door-to-door book peddler with a perfect balance of assertiveness, insecurity, and weirdness.
