Budding Prospects Never Buds
1 April 2017 | by ibrianSee all my reviews

While in 1983 San Francisco, three guys get an opportunity to run a grow operation and make bank. This 30-minute piece goes no further and presents no focus beyond just that. Snooze. Some of the more experienced actors give a decent performance but nothing feels developed or of any quality in the slow moving Budding Prospects when so many other shorts deliver intrigue and grasp in only ten or so minutes. I really wanted to like it but just couldn't find the grounds nor to watch another minute that seemed like the past five minutes.
