Unique take on classic filmmaking
20 December 2002 | by comebakshaneSee all my reviews

This little short was by far the best I saw while attending Columbia's film festival last year.

Take a typical student film, remove the schmalzy premise, the trite "what if", the strained characters -- remove all the appurtenances of someone trying to be "clever".

Now add directorial clean lines (it's so hard to be beautiful and simple), add a wonderful and CLASSIC little story, and add a main character that actually carries an understated emotive pull. That's this film. A sweet little talk, and a great talent.

I see a lot of these, and it's hard to get through the clutter. Misdemeanor definitely distanced itself. I give it a 9!
