waiting for a train
8 May 2013 | by FBzaEastenederSee all my reviews

A sharply-dressed man waits for a train at a provincial, deserted train station. The surroundings are stark, desolate, adding to a sense of foreboding. But the music is lively, and the man's expressions are confident and exaggerated. However, his confidence is dented by something glimpsed from the corner of his eye.

This is a technically excellent short film that relies on a conceit often found in shorts, and even features like Twelve Monkeys and Logan's Run. At under 5 minutes it is very economical, but that also means there is no time for character development or interaction. All in all, amusing lite fare.
