Getting Ahead
3 February 2014 | by A_PsychoSee all my reviews

I never have really been a fan of short films. I like my movies and I like their length - enough time to explore a new world, complete with an evolving plot, fleshed out characters, and all sorts of twists and turns. I decided to watch a few short films earlier, though, because I wanted some quick breaks in between studying.

This work was one to spark an interest in me for the art of short film. The very first shot tells an entire story in itself. I immediately found myself interested. Soon afterwards, a stranger approaches our main character with a one-of-a-kind product. It offered the sort of opportunity no one I could imagine would refuse.

I don't want to spoil any surprises here, but suffice it to say that this "mystery box", and its consequences, deliver a simple yet poignant message that we can all relate to. And that's why I've found a new appreciation for the art of short film: you don't always need two hours to tell a story, or to enjoy one, when a few minutes and the creative talent of a brilliant team of filmmakers will do.
