Stutterer is a character driven short feature about a young boy that wishes to scream and be heard of. The emotions poured onto screen seem a splash of risk for it may land on either side of the coin but since the genuine reasoning isn't dependable on its justification, it comes off effective and impressive.
The camera work is plausible, and is shot beautifully with an amazing cinematography and subtle background score that helps the viewers calculate the magnitude of the sequence. The characters can be one-dimensional in such short films considering the limited amount of time they are allotted but in here they are pragmatic and smarter to keep the audience invested in it.
The primary reason why it works is how the makers have managed to pick up such a small piece of the puzzle and depict it with such higher stakes to communicate with the audience which works like a charm in here.
Benjamin Cleary; the writer-director, has done an excellent work on executing such an explicit script that is fueled within its self-created morality conflicts. Matthew Needham is convincing in his portrayal and is amazing on conveying the message without any words.
Stutterer is an unflinching and fluent reply to the society, unseen mythical force and oneself, as far as emotions are valued and concerned equally.
