You think you know...
21 July 2010 | by rgcustomerSee all my reviews

At several points during this short, you probably think you know what is happening. But you probably don't until near the end.

I found it to be captivating from beginning to end, with good camera work, acting, and sound. The story is slowly revealed, piece by piece, some expected, some not.

However, I think the writer must not like the characters very much, given the ending that both are stuck with. While it is clever, this is what limited me from giving it a higher score. There doesn't appear to be a lot of hope in this short.

Also, is it just me, or does Guy 1 (Julien Zeitouni) look like Tobey Maguire? I'm glad he got out from behind the camera. Yum.
