Imaginative in its creatively boring subject matter
9 May 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

THE RAFTMAN'S RAZOR is about two very strange teens who love a rather surreal and pointless comic by the same name. Unlike normal comics, this one is the ultimate in boredom and made no attempt to entertain the audience--yet the boys became huge fans because of this! Despite nothing happening for page after page after page, the boys were devoted to every last panel--even though almost every single panel featured nothing happening and no dialog.

This is an amazingly dull short film but also manages to be oddly compelling--no small feat to say the least! In some ways, it's like taking all the quiet and uninteresting scenes from NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and condensing them into only about 7 minutes. Fortunately, had it lasted any longer than 7 minutes I would have probably fallen asleep! Odd and hard to describe but still almost interesting--sort of like I felt when watching Charles Kuralt.
