Pinhole + Peeper = Perfection
17 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Just caught this little gem on CBC Reflections. Have to say it's one of the best short films I've ever seen, an elegantly crafted, perfectly nuanced brain teaser that might be best described as The Twilight Zone directed by the Coen Brothers. The film employs a deftly clever premise to subtly engage the viewer's attention, draws that interest tighter and tighter with steadily accumulating tension and increasingly quirky plot developments, then delivers the shocking climax in a fashion that is utterly original and unexpected. And the final shot-an elegant little coda that might have Hitchcock himself smiling in the firmament-seals the deal in completely a satisfying manner.

I look forward to full length works from the talented writer/director, Jon Knautz.
