My favorite short film of 2007
3 October 2008 | by rudytootie2See all my reviews

"My favorite short film of 2007, Matthew Lessner's By Modern Measure is a masterfully executed gem, which uses beautifully grainy black-and-white film and French New Wave techniques to comment on just how difficult it is to make an honest romantic connection in our commercialized and corny modern world. But there's a sincerity and gravity to the work that makes it more just mere satire and elevates it to greatness. This, my friends, is what short films should be." Michael Tully, Indiewire

"A perfect short film. It's tight, smart, funny and sad. It reaches back to the French New Wave to shed light on the MySpace Generation." Lya Guerra, SXSW
