Down Memory Lane
20 November 2014 | by statuskuoSee all my reviews

An absolutely beautiful short film. Simple in execution but expertly done by all involved. What I loved about this movie, is the tone of it is perfect. Perfect nostalgia of a kid loving something so much with the earnest conviction that the world would end if they didn't get it. So they bargain with their parents. It's sweet and seems universal that we all want to give our kids something but they have to earn it. To teach them the value of what they earn.

What transcends it all is the value they want to raise their kids with, despite underpinnings of failure of their own. The cynicism of life creeps in, the older you get which is often tempered by the exuberance of youth. They are excited about things you long since forgot. In "Cutlas" you share the joy. I love this short. Looks great, sounds great. Well made.
