Hilarious and well-done
1 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a remarkable short film and rewards multiple viewings - the director is obviously working on a level beyond the average film student. Or maybe I shouldn't say 'obviously' because the film works on a very subtle, dry, understated level that many might miss on first glance. On one level it's a gory comedy, but there are other levels of deep emotion and questioning, thanks in large part to the dedicated performance from the lead actor. True, some of the other performances are uneven and there are some redundant scenes, but on the whole this is a clever, sharply written and directed movie. Great cinematography and music too. You'll enjoy this if you like the films of the Coen Brothers, Polanski, or Hitchcock's darker movies.
