Everything a Short Indie Film Should Be
12 June 2020 | by aerosimmsSee all my reviews

"You Are Me" is engaging from the start, with some of the best acting yet seen in a TimeAxisMedia (TAM) production. The chemistry between the protagonist, veteran Indie actor Randy Davison, and his spouse, the lovely and multi-talented Annie Willett, is more than believable; and Larry Poole's turn as a brooding doctor is almost harbinger-like in its stoicism. The only thing missing perhaps is a slightly more comprehensive soundtrack which could have put the more tender scenes over the top. Elsewhere, however, incidental music conducted by long-time TAM collaborator Reber Clark is quite effective, and overall the score does its job well, particularly during transitions and over an excellent "dying memories" scene.

Dialog like, "This one had three fingers," is both creepy and amusing, showing that the writer knew how to balance their material. Android Greyson is a real treat from the get-go and further testament to lead actor Davison's craft, which carries the film through several layers of emotion. The almost fatherly warning from his creator for the automaton to avoid magnets and saliva is somewhat called into question by the idea that once the protagonist's consciousness transfers to the android, it will know everything its human version did, thus making such warnings unnessesary; this brief suspension of disbelief, however, is soon rewarded by the satisfying surprise turn of events leading to the finale which is just vague enough to give the audience pause to ask all the right questions, ultimately concluding that love is love, no matter the hardware in which its data resides. Another fine genre short from TAM producer and seasoned Indie film director Clarke M. Smith, whose work gets almost exponentially better with each production. Continued masterful implementation of lessons learned from a veritable library of independent films under TimeAxis' belt definitley shows.
