Storyline

In the dusty sun-baked West, in a cheap and smelly old saloon filled with a motley assortment of typical scoundrels, enters a solitary thirsty gunslinger, and although this may be true, he is not entirely alone. Mysteriously, the husky masculine voice of an invisible narrator accompanies the pale and tall gunman on his every step, describing explicitly his next move, revealing more and more, little by little. But why should they trust the "voice", furthermore, as it is widely known that nobody likes spoilers, why won't this all-knowing sadist stop spilling the beans? Written by Nick Riganas

The Gunfighter: Who's sayin' that stuff?
The Narrator: He scanned the room with a suspicious eye. Years on the run from the law had taught him that a tough man could get out of a situation, but a smart man never gets himself into one.
The Gunfighter: Please quit doin' that. I just want to have a shot of whiskey in peace.
The Narrator: But the gunfighter would find no peace for the Henderson boys were waiting in the corner to kill him ...

Worth your time.
31 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Normally I don't watch short films, but this one was definitely worth the exception. The concept with the narrator may not be entirely new, but it is played out very well.

The running gag (the all knowing narration) is accompanied by a few nice jokes will make you grin. The film doesn't take itself too serious, which helps.

Acting is good, camera work is good. A must see when you want to kill some time in a way you won't regret (which is rare these days with all the big productions that put massive special effects in front of decent acting and good plots).
