OK, Park does it again. What does this guy put in his water? Seriously. From opening to close you get taken along on a ride in usual Park fashion only to have your sense of normal and what is what shattered into itty bitty pieces.

This is a bit of a "spiritual" piece and is an interesting short if only clocking in at 30 minutes. If you're a fan of his other works, you'll probably like this. The subject matter couldn't have been made into a full length movie as it would have been boring as all get out but that fact that this was shot on an iPhone makes it a rather quirky film that gets bonus points from me.

What's next Mr. Park, shooting on a PXL-2000?
