Better than most shorts, but...
31 December 2017 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

As a short this accomplishes what it set out to accomplish... but one has to wonder "why?".

The art of story telling is a fine art, and when it's well-accomplished stands out regardless of the subject matter. But sometimes the story is just so jump-the-shark that one wonders if it is good story telling or just shock schlock.

In this film we are presented a hard-to-swallow premise: that being "perfect" is illegal. That makes the entire story line an uphill climb for the audience as we find this difficult to conceive, therefore do not relate to it. So we accept it as satire or comedy, except there's no real satire or comedy in the entire film. And while the ending is somewhat brilliant in a manner of speaking-- it's also pointless. The main thing I came away with from this short is, "Okay, I get it, but... it's awful."

Within the framework of the film itself and the manner in which it is presented, it fulfills its goals. But those goals are iffy from the beginning. I've never enjoyed shock for the sake of shock and likely never will. There are better stories to tell... and better stories to watch. A film should entertain, or make a point, or teach, or make one laugh or cry... something. The problem is that we come away from this with no value perceived. The story is contrived and doesn't relate at all to the viewer. I'm sure the writer was trying to make a point, and I get it, but the point made has no correlating reality that I can recognize-- and that's why I can't rate it any higher
