Gracefully violent. Violently graceful.
12 December 2002 | by mikesaenzSee all my reviews

Crossing is a short film about Scotty, a young man who deftly jumps in front of moving cars, ostensibly to get money from the shocked and apologetic drivers. Not something most people would consider doing as a hobby and a way of life, and one thing you might expect from this film is that there is no way for the audience to find a character like this sympathetic or engaging.

But what the writer/director manages to pull off in this film is nothing short of amazing. Over the twelve minute film, we throughly learn the ins and outs of Scotty's character, through graceful stream-of-conscious voice over, and a floating, visually somnambulant style that perfectly places the audience in this lost character's shoes. It's all very reminiscent of Wong Kar-Wai.

This really is a great short film. The visuals are perfect for the story. The performances are very convincing and, perhaps this is a guilty pleasure, the shots of the cars hitting Scotty are shots of a real live person being hit by a car. So see this film if you or someone you love is interested in becoming a stunt man.
