Jeff Stanzler's short "Mocking the Cosmos" is a little movie with some big ideas and a startlingly black sense of humor. The plot concerns a nasty divorced couple (Tim Roth and Kelly Rowan) and their bright young son (Jonathan Farkas). The bickering parents are contrasted with an intergalactic drama that only magnifies their pettiness.
The acting is quite good, with all of the adult cast members taking on disparate dual roles. Roth has never given us reason to doubt his versatility, and there's certainly a taste of it here.
