Final Twist Powers 'Passive Aggressive Dads'
4 March 2019 | by stu-00329See all my reviews

I don't generally review short films because ... well, they're short. There usually isn't much to say. Moreover, it's hard to tell readers where to see them.

But Passive Aggressive Dads, a five-minute film that I caught at the Sedona International Film Festival, is noteworthy.

I can't reveal much about the plot other than to say it involves two dads at the park with their young daughters and some unruly teens driving carelessly, roughhousing and acting lewdly nearby. However, writer/director Jim Picariello delivers a final twist that shocked audience members, then left them laughing out loud.

Passive Aggressive Dads, which Sedona programmers have paired with the sci-fi comedy feature Eleven Eleven, will screen again on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 4:15 p.m. at the Harkins Sedona 6.

If you're in Sedona, or you see Passive Aggressive Dads listed at your local film festival, it's worth your (short) time.
