Mesmerizing
18 April 2019 | by milunacSee all my reviews

I've not seen this short in many years, but it has always stayed with me. It's uncomfortable, but poignant. At that time, I knew Ewen's work, but SKIN ranked him as one of the best for me. So happy to see his career matches his talents.

I would love to see a full 2 hour film from this short. Everything about this short is classic, human and tragic and yet goes to a place beyond comprehension. The writer and direction is spot on... LOVED and highly recommend watching if you can get your hands on it...

I just watched it again. It's a whopper and for a short to have such impact and power; still... mesmerizing.
