Amazing
6 March 2007 | by nostalgic_hero2002See all my reviews

I saw this short at the durango Independent Film Festival. It was definitely one of the standout screenings. Flawless cinematography combined with an intense plot and excellent acting creates a wonderful story thats grips you all the way to the ends surprising conclusion. This short is a definite must see for any short film lover. Besides this amazing short, a few others I saw at the festival that any short film lover may want to see is, "Avatar", "The Clearing", "Hollow," and "Miracle." They were all amazing shorts. "Checkpoint," was simply an amazing short film. For any of you that have never heard of the Durango Independent Film Festival, I highly recommend checking it out. It's still pretty young, but it's growing fast. There I saw this great short and many others.
