This is another short I saw in my Canadian cinema class. A man sits alone at a bar, and while nursing his beer. He witnessed a fight, broke it up, and sits on the guy who started it. Recited some poetry of Al Purdy. Based on a story by Canadian poet Al Purdy, starring The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie. It would suffice to say that I loved every minute of it. Wonderful camera work, the poetry is astounding and extremely well represented in the film. This short is also somewhat self-reflexive as so many musicals are and (at the risk of sounding pretentious) as we all know plot in a musical is almost a cop out but here this style of narrative works. And works REALY well. Such a pity that it was so short.
