Quotes

Ray Wentworth: No, I am a cynic.
Gundy: No, I am a cynic. You are cynical. There is a difference. I never believed in the first place, but you, you wake up every morning disappointed to find the world the way it is, because you are a dreamer. Write the card, Raymond.

A quirky, subtle fun-bite
23 February 2017 | by Russ_ThompsonSee all my reviews

Not for everyone admittedly, but rejecting it simply for the reason it is something off-beat and irregular is just a mistake.

This 70 minutes long satiric comedy sketch gives one an askew glimpse into the greeting-card and holiday industry.

Simple yet complex. Movie lovers will find little echoes of some films and TV-shows mixed in this bit. Most palpable influences I dare say were Enemy(Villeneuve), Punch-drunk Love, Dr. Strangelove, and for some oddly surprising reason some parts of Mulholland Dr.

I found it to be filled with heart, brains and subtlety.

Nothing serious, just a well written, very well acted and directed elongated sketch. Some will be bored to tears, some others (like me) will be enjoying this one with an idiotic smile on their faces. Watch and see for your self.
