«A stunning visual treat but it is just taht. The anticipation from the conversation is not paid off for me. 4 stars.»
Ad Hominem Attack
«It was decent, it started off looking pretty interesting and as always its visually stunning. But there was nothing much really to it, besides that. Considering just how long th conversation in the beginning went on, there really wasnt much else worth watching to the video. Overall an OK effort.»
«"Tell me Owen, .....is it raining?"
Great camera work. The blending of closeup and distance shots worked out well
Excellent musical choices. Set a mood.
Taking a phylisophical arguement and turning it back on the person creates a sense of 'is it real or is it not'
Nothing that I could see other than the usual twitches and motion quirks associated with MS
A very good adaptation. Great work.»
«gp once again outdoes himself! 2 different roles and both acted perfectly with a completly different tone of voice. The pacing and the music are top notch as well. The sound designe comes close to perfection. The only technical critique would be the blood running out of the nose effect which seems a little unfitting at times, other than that, brilliant!
And, I love the concept behind the film!
You certainly are my favourite director at TMU at the moment. Keep filming!»
«WOW! Dare I say it's your best piece to date? The sound design was just brilliant and effectively conveyed action where there was none to be seen. All the acting was great but GP, well what can you say, just and outstanding performance in both roles. The mood and atmosphere were both experienced on an emotional level. »
«What the hell did I write in my review? Never mind. Anyway, I came back because I felt I missed something. I feel as if I didn't give enough credit to the argument of the man with a knife. Of course, he makes a good argument, not verbally but compelling in another way!»
«Beautifully produced! It is a wonderful technical achievement. The style also fits the story very well. I loved Goofparade's Owen, but found myself almost cheering for the other character by him (although not agreeing with his own argument). Owen's topic itself is fascinating and something that requires much more serious in-depth consideration than the way Owen went on with it. Owen is a nice characterization. I guess thinking about those matters at such a shallow level is still better than ignoring them, but the disdainful attitude is something that he has to do without. This combination gives bad rep to people who really care about these matters.»
«Very enjoyable. I loved the ambience and thought it was great to look at. The cinematography was excellent. A very atmospheric work.
As ever the actors do a first class job of bringing their characters to life. The performance of Goofparade, in particular, shines through.
A superb film.»
«I was left wandering, was i watching a Machinima movie, sure it looked like a machinima movie, but what if all it really was, was a collection of pixels scattered around a plasma screen on my office wall.
A brilliantly gripping and extremely well made short, very very impressed!
«Flashy splashy short. I completely identify with GP's darker half here. Stupid burnout wannabe philosophy pontificating college kids. Take your hackeysacks and your Sartre and jump off your existential bridges (or at least get off of my lawn). GP sure gave GP what he had coming.
Water and the lighting effects were very nice. Blood on the face not so much (and I ended up focusing on it way too much as a result). Other than that its all roses for me.»
«Wow Jorge. I think I said it before, but watching your progress in film-making is awesome!
Every film tops the last, the way you film, camera position, shot composition, building of atmosphere, sound-design and post production - I'm so impressed with this movie!
Love the script - GP is soooo good as the two characters, can you believe I hardly recognised him being Owen in the beginning? He's a vo - god! You and Dulci did great, too!
The incessant rain, the lighting, the soft focus, the colours, the music.... wow.
«I like how this came off of the script and lept onto the screen.
The song playing in the BG works well against the hyper dialogue spewing from Owen.
Sounds great mix wise, great sound design and it hits a new gear once we see the stranger lurking in the dark. The knife scene works so well with the different focal lengths on the camera.
I really enjoyed watching it and working on it.»
«I've come to expect a high level of intensity and perceptive rawness from your dramatic movies, and in this one you accomplish just that yet again. The stylish camera work and incessant rain add depth to the already poignant script and masterful acting by both you and goofparade. A fantastic exploration of this philosophical theme.»
