Storyline

Officer John Halloway arrives home on his 45th birthday, only to find no surprise birthday guests waiting for him. Frustrated and alone, with a day old cupcake, John makes no wishes and goes straight to bed. Suddenly John is awakened by a camera man who has barged into the back door of his home at 2:00 AM, unannounced, ready for a ride along. As matters begin to get worse, John is ordered by his Captain to train rookie officer Peter Swanco, a strange and unlikely officer who claims he took his police exams over the Internet. Something is terribly wrong. John loses radio contact with dispatch and soon discovers that Swanco is not who he appears to be.

It just goes on and on...
21 June 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The film begins with a cop going off duty and going home to bed. However, he awakens and is in some sort of surreal life. A bizarre camera man is walking around his house, the dispatcher insists that he is NOT off duty and must respond to a call and a weird rookie cop just appears from no where. None of it makes sense--it's all like a dream that never ends.

This is a short that I really wanted to like. Heck, for the first half, I was enjoying myself but then the short film just kept going and going and going--and the longer it went, the less satisfied I was with the film. This film definitely illustrates the maxim that "more is less". There just didn't seem to be much of a point. About the only thing I enjoyed was the performance by the befuddled cop.
