A slow builder with a clever pay off!
21 March 2006 | by keith KornelsenSee all my reviews

What's for sale? Who is for sale? And how to negotiate your worth in a falling market, are just some of the questions tackled by this inventive short. I saw "Whatever it takes" in a private screening before it hit the festivals. "Whatever it takes" at it's core is a psychological thriller. It's got snappy "Tarantino" like dialogue that cleverly fuels this story to a twisted and unexpected end. It suffers a bit from the low budget blues. But there's a story here! An intelligent story about selling power, leverage, and how to determine worth. How do you tell a cool story in a weekend, with a few hundred bucks in a warehouse? You do what ever it takes!
