Actor Shia LaBeouf has been directing a few shorts and this one is the first I seen so far.
It's a short film horror mockumentary about two french speaking serial killers who is followed by camera crew. If this story sounds familiar, it could be that it looks like C'est arrivé près de chez vous/Man Bites Dog (1992, an infamous black comedy/mockumentary about a serialkiller who gets followed by camera crew.
It is not that interesting as a film, and LaBeouf seems more interested in style then substance, however that is the film's most enduring quality. Very slick cinematography, direction etc.
The black and white, saturated colors, the colorgrading is very pretty. Thechnically Shia LaBeouf has proved to me at least that he can direct, it's only the content that's missing.
Hopefully we will get to see a full feature film by Shia LaBeouf in few years, it seems that he is ready for it.
