A hidden gem of a short film
20 November 2015 | by ebmattheSee all my reviews

I may be biased as I am a fan of sci-fi films, but it also makes me a tougher critic of them. I was able to catch Recoil on the Opening Night of the Burbank International Film Festival in Los Angeles. Man, was it a fun ride. The film starts off with a bang (literally) and doesn't let go until the final seconds. To open a major festival and be met with such a wild applause from the packed house leads me to believe that everyone else forgot where they were for 19 minutes, tuned out the world and bought into Recoil. For that I thank the filmmaker. It's hard for any short film to have a solid beginning, middle, and end, but then hits you with a water-cooler, chat-worthy twist. The final kicker, this was a student film! I'd watch whatever this director comes out with next. Fun ride, see it (on the big screen) if you can.
