The Abyss of Darkness Told in 80 seconds
1 February 2021 | by ebisunoreaderSee all my reviews

The Tattooist (2018) is a micro-short (or, let's say, a vignette lasting a little over 1 minute) which focuses on the titular Tattooist. As in the case of the director's previous short film, The Story of 90 Coins, I was again surprised at the complexity of a story that was conveyed in an extremely short time span. Michael Wong not only is able to compress meaningful tales, but he also has a great eye to detailed visuals. It is impossible to talk about this short without giving away the spoiler, so you need to check it out for yourselves. This one minute shall not go to waste! I sincerely hope that The Tattooist will be turned into a feature movie.
