Worth a look...
8 November 2006 | by vr_redSee all my reviews

This small gem of a film is proof that a great story can be told even if you only have 15 minutes. Director Jerry Chan immerses you in a Chinatown full of sound and colour that is made much more believable by the strong cast. It's nice to see Archie Kao finally get the chance to flex his acting muscles away from the CSI Las Vegas lab. Chan/Kao - definitely a production team to watch in the future. It would be interesting to see what they could do with a full 2 hours...

But what really got my attention was the cinematography. Maximilian Gutierrez is a gifted artist that has transformed this short film into a delicious feast for the eyes. In fact, I was so blown away by his stuff, I've been inspired to check out all his other projects. If you have a spare 15 minutes, take the time to see Fast Money. You won't be disappointed.
