Style and confidence – I just wish it really was as funny and smart as it looks like it is
26 December 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

There is a great sense of style and confidence in this short film. With Isaac at its core, and a Wes Anderson infused design to it, for sure it is easy to enjoy the tone of the film. A story of infidelity and betrayal plays out in the single location with only a handful of character, all done with an offbeat tone and a lot of energy. It is a short that seems bigger than its running time – well, not that it has the material to carry it for longer than this, but more than the confidence it has in the delivery makes it feel so.

The problem is that it feels like it is really pushing on these pedals of style and confidence because it doesn't have much else going for it. And, being honest, this impression remains throughout the film because it is not as funny nor as smart as the design and delivery suggest it is. I did want to like it for what it did well, however it seemed all the effort was put into these aspects, and below the surface there was nothing that really that stayed with me for long afterwards.
