Lynne Ramsay Jr.,
In the tradition of classic westerns, a narrator sets up the story of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon. However, the people in this saloon can hear the narrator and the narrator may just be a little bit bloodthirsty.
As I was watching it, I kept thinking of the similarities to parts of The Fast Show (aka Brilliant! in the US): the "Brilliant!" walking monologues with Paul Whitehouse, and Caroline Aherne's teenage monologues.
But don't be fooled. There is much more to this short film than meets the eye at first, and you'll probably want to watch it again.
