Slickly presented and surprisingly effective in what it does
7 February 2016 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

The concept of The Answers is simple: our main character is dead and appears to the camera in front of a white background. Realizing he can now know everything there is to know, he asks lots of questions of his maker, getting the answer each time. At first it is small grudges and fun stats, but as it goes on he comes to a greater realization about the time he just ended.

The presentation of this short is surprisingly simple in what it does; we get the idea very quickly –Nathan is dead and we see the answers to his questions in quickly edited flashback sequences. It has energy and is amusing from the start, and it is this fun energy that draws the viewer in. The simple structure works well with the colorful and more detailed flashbacks to provide a film that is superficial but yet also provides us with enough about the character to actually care about. So when the film does inevitably turn a bit sappy and reflective in nature, we are more or less there with it. I won't say it was perfectly moving, but it was nicely done to make me care and then deliver some gentler moments to use that.
