I very much welcomed the opportunity to view short film Justice Served, having enjoyed director Patrick Rea's feature film Arbor Demon (AKA Enclosure), where he marked himself out as a director not afraid to do something different to the norm. With Justice Served Rea again confounds expectations and comes up with a twisted, darkly humorous tale that takes a short while to click into gear but once it does it's a subversive delight.
What first appears to be a straightforward trial – proving whether a young man pushed a small girl in front of an oncoming car – soon reveals itself to be anything but. Nothing is what it seems and the less said about the direction Justice Served takes the better. I'd rather viewers see this as I did without any spoilers. Likened to The Twilight Zone by the director, Justice Served relishes playing against expectations and is one short that warrants repeat viewings.
