Two boyhood chums wasting time
23 October 2001 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

It's one of those moments in childhood. Two young boys play a game of chicken with a knife. To one it may be no more than a way of wasting time but to the other its something he'll remember forever. Maybe they both will.

This evocative short is well made and fast paced and well worth the entire 3 minutes it takes to see.
