Here are a collection of short films that I liked to various degrees and which didn't spark long reviews.(For more information and tickets go here)
Jacqueline has a reoccurring nightmare and a seeming split personality and somehow she keep ending up at Wowsers where a Mr Dims runs the show. This is an attempt to cross David Lynch style weirdness with bondage games but it doesn't really work. It's not so much bad but trying to too hard.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY AGAIN
A video game lets a young girl relive a terrible event in her life and attempt to get it right. Okay film is better in the idea than the execution, which just sort of misses.
You girl who loves horror films torments her babysitter on New Year's Eve by recreating classic scenes from various horror films. Amusing short film may be one note, but it is a great deal of fun to see how that one note plays out.
Coming of age story about a Filipino boy being raised by a single mom. Forced to deal with uncertainty of his heritage and racism at school he struggle to find his way in the world. Okay short film really should have been a feature film. As good as the film is, it is juggling way too many balls for a 15 minute film with the result everything feels rushed and unfinished. On the plus side, if this a proof of concept film it makes it clear that this should translate to great feature film. Worth a look.
