Completely absurd but also quite watchable
16 May 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a short film that you best watch and not question or think about, as it might just make your head explode!! It's a truly Absurdist sort of film and is meant to be weird and nonsensical.

It begins with a guy at home minding his own business. However, a phone is ringing somewhere and eventually he gets up to find it. Oddly, the phone is hidden in the front yard! And, after he picks it up and hears no one, another phone begins ringing in the distance and he also feels compelled to seek it. Eventually, after doing this several times, he comes to a lone phone that doesn't ring. So, he decides to follow the cord--and follows it out to the desert where there is a weird cult-like group who sit and stare at a lone red phone incessantly---waiting for it to ring!

There's more to it and believe me, none of it makes sense. But, like the search for the ringing phone, it's oddly compelling...

By the way, I don't know if this film was inspired by it (I assume it was) but for some time there WAS a lonely payphone in the Mojave Desert and people from all over the world came to answer it and talk with other odd people from around the globe who got the number by word of mouth. Sadly, the phone company eventually disconnected the thing because the National Park Service decided that all these people in the desert was a bad thing. Another job well done by the US government!
