Am I a cold-hearted asshat for hating this piece of crap?


So yeah: this short film has been making the internet rounds. Me, I think it’s pretentious (shot in black and white, backed by a crescendo of strings), it’s predictable (oh, that was all a dream!), and it’s the most derivative thing I’ve seen all year. It’s like an over-long DeBeers commercial. As The Gays are fond of saying about theme parties: it’s been done before, and better.

But whatever: don’t just take a bitter queen’s word. Judge for yourself:

    Imagine film school. Final exam. Student puts in every single technique and trick learned into one piece. He passes. Years later we see a first theatrical release. Voice overs by Vincent Price. Film makes money. Film school now adds his genre to curriculum. Shit perpetuates shit. Yup Yup

    Of COURSE it's pretentious- of course it looks like a debeers commercial- THATS the point. I love it because it is like something you would see on SNL or MadTV- AND the best part is that there is NO punchline. You are left feeling like you have been duped out of 4:41 min. of your life- and that is the BEST joke of all isn't it?….
