A solitary man stares at himself in a bathroom mirror. In the kitchen, he fixes himself a t-bone steak. While he's eating, a drop of blood falls from his nose onto the plate. He puts a wad of paper in that nostril. Later, the nosebleed reappears while he's bathing; in his sleep, it becomes more severe. Now he's feeling panic. His world is out of joint. Can he calm himself down and regain control? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Is that a bullet in your nose, or are you glad to see me...
30 March 2010 | by U.N. OwenSee all my reviews

In a 10 minute short that's almost totally silent (except for background noises and effects - and grunts), David Arquette plays a man who develops a horrendous nosebleed, and as it's shot in crisp black and white - the starkness of the blood is more-so.

His frustration escalate as the nosebleed refuses to stop. His remedy is - well, let's say..odd.

There's Beck's DEVIL'S HAIRCUT as the main song played, while David celebrates - dancing around in his PJ's - his nosebleed stopping...or does it? Does the blood stop, or, is there...something more? While I like David Arquette, and think it's nicely shot, the story it presents is...so-so, I'm afraid. Not terrible, but not great. A short film should grab you (which this certainly does), and set up a situation (ditto). Though it doesn't need to be resolved, it should leave the viewer - at least with a question that you can wonder about.

Nosebleed does just that, but, when you get to the end, the question it leaves you with is really not worth it, I'm sorry to say.
