"Jesus ain't done s**t for me, man."
8 July 2006 | by AlwoodSee all my reviews

Filmmaker Adam Schlacter has fashioned a poignant, honest tale about love and loss, fathers and sons, and the delicate nature of family. When a young man is looking after his younger brother on a desolate beach, they encounter a wandering preacher, who begins to sermonize at them. Soon the young man realizes that the preacher is his estranged father, resulting in a heated, and cathartic confrontation.

There's nothing more difficult than telling a fleshed-out story in short amount of time. While this film, which was produced for Esquire magazine's annual student film-making competition, runs only six minutes, it manages to convey a wealth of emotions and tell a story of depth and resonance in the process. Kudos to all involved! 10/10
