User Reviews: It’s a well made short film, I must say, with so much consideration given to acting, cinematography, editing and sound design. All of this is let down by what I feel is a very mediocre screenplay that doesn’t go anywhere.
Even the climax, though it is bold and unconventional, feels like it exists only to necessitate the climax of the film the way it did, than as an actual conclusion or resolution to the story beat.
I only wish this movie was written as good as it was filmed.
