Concept short.
17 February 2021 | by noahgibbobakerSee all my reviews

This was, interesting. I like the whacky concept, it's unique and darkly-comedic but it's nothing more than that. I thought it was going to end up as some kind of metaphor but it didn't. The message of the short was just spelled out onfront of my eyes devoid of subtlety.

The secondary characters are cartoonish and the story is rushed. But it's nine minutes, it's really well don't for the time and budget they had.

I also enjoyed the purposefully cheesball soundtrack.
