Storyline

For reasons unknown, a young man, tied, gagged and beaten to death, finds himself trapped in a dark and confined space. As the doomed man slowly regains consciousness, in a desperate attempt to escape, he summons up his remaining strength to break free, only to realise that he is inside a speeding car's trunk, on a rugged stretch of road. His name is Lucky. Is this a euphemism or is he really going to get out of this mess? Written by Nick Riganas

Amazing short film!
20 October 2007 | by avidlibrarianSee all my reviews

What an amazing film! It is difficult to tell a story in three minutes with no dialog, but Edgerton manages it beautifully. We know nothing about how the protagonist managed to get into his predicament, but almost immediately we want him to succeed. The camera work, cinematography and stunts are wonderful, and the ending is so unexpected, it reminds us how captivating a film can be, and how rarely we see this kind of quality these days. I wish there were more opportunities for the general public to see short films, because they are really missing out on some great works like this. Here's hoping we see more from this talented filmmaker.
