As a movie goer since my teenage times, I must say this was one of the best short films I have ever seen. While I saw it, it reminded me of many marvelous movies... The last picture show, Long Island Expressway (LIE), Thelma and Louise, My own private Idaho... and many others... Amy Talkington is a very good director. She shows she must do longer movies for our pleasure. The actors were great, Billy and the other youngsters are just X generation guys - just like all of us! And they show how life can be cruel with us every day. A snake is more than just an animal: it is at the same time a picture of our society and a symbol of how we have sometimes to survive in a world full of people... Gary Zazulka (Nat) exhales sensuality and exuberance. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a good movie and a real true metaphor of our daily lives. By the end of the movie, we realize how true was what Jean Paul Sartre said about our freedom: "men are condemned to their own freedom". Even living out of prisons, we still live in a huge cage - even if we do not see the bars... I loved you, Amy Talkington! And I loved your cast - especially the scene on the bus, and the end... You have to remake this screenplay as a longer story! It was just perfect! Congratulations! Send me an e-mail some day because I would love to get to know you and your cast! LOL
