Disappointing Short
11 November 2012 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

A Young woman called Sara witnesses a group of youths robbing a woman at the bus stop . She intervenes and one of the robbers makes it clear he wants to go home with her

I should put my cards on the table straight away and state that I'm not a big fan of short films . Often they stand or fall on their pay off and if the plotting isn't right then because of their short running time the flaws of their plotting are more pronounced . In effect most films are " idiot plots " in that if someone stops acting like an idiot then the film will end there and then

This short opens with Sara taking a cocktail of medicinal pills and this ties in with the ending. Between the start and the ending there must be an inciting incident and this takes place when Sara witnesses the robbery . Certainly the female fear of unwanted sexual attention is very pronounced in BABY but after the pay off you'll realise that Damon's sexual interest isn't what the pay off is about - quite the reverse in fact because without a sexual interest the story won't work . But in that case why does Sara act so intimidated?

In many ways this aspect of the film is similar to these cliff-hangers we see in DOCTOR WHO where the Doctor is pleading for his life all terrified that he's going to get executed by that week's villains but at the start of the next episode he magically pushes a button freeing himself . In that case why be terrified ? In many ways Sara's obvious disconcerting mannerism is very similar and lacks an internal logic
