I signed up to IMDb specifically to give a review of this film. That's how much I liked it. I got to see it at a festival recently and it is on a level of its own. (And I've been to more than a few fests in the past couple years.) Jay Lifton's TEST is awesome and unlike anything you've likely seen before – which is a feat in of itself. The story is essentially about a man who undergoes a mysterious test in a strange place. And it's hysterical. But what I really love about it is that you also could call it science-fiction, or horror, or even a love story of sorts. To me, that's the mark of a great film – and great filmmaking. It's totally un-classifiable. Both smart and silly, in the best of ways, I enjoyed every second of it. It makes me want to see what Mr. Lifton does next - with any luck, it will be a feature! If you need a reference, the closest thing I could think of comparing the film to is the work of Roy Andersson or Monty Python. I could not recommend this short any more. I'm hoping it will be online soon enough!
