Pretty payoff.
17 August 2017 | by redshoesfallSee all my reviews

It's not great, but it is a solid short film. Does lag in the beginning, with the technical terms, but you see enough of the world (of a sophisticated design) and it's clear that this is the spawn of Ridley Scott (quite literally). I do recommend this film - not for its story, but for the more technical things it does right. Though the story isn't stupid, it's just rather short and a little slow moving, but by God, did I enjoy the climax.

There is a wee bit of nudity, mothers be aware, but the music with the visuals combine for a very pleasant experience. I do want to see more of this world. By how this film was executed, I can see it being just as attractive and sophisticated - though it needs a little work on character development and execution. Ribisvi was fine, but I found the female lead's delivery to be not as believable (namely considering the dialogue).

Give it a watch, and decide for yourself.
