My Confession

Dark, sexy, well shot and well acted. I'm not sure if I'd class this as a thriller, but for a very difficult genre it wasn't far off fitting the bill. This is one of those serious films that shows comedy isn't always the key to a good short.

Life in the Bus Lane

This film could have been excellent. The use of the found footage genre was genius, and there was a lot of nice imagery. It just felt at the end like I had watched an Instagram slideshow, and nothing else had really happened. Maybe it was really all just him dreaming, hence the sleep facts and dreamlike imagery… A nice film, but just needed something else to make it great.

Southdown

Possibly the most difficult genre ever in the competition. One shot scenes only work when you pack as much into it as you possibly can. For this you may need a thousand men on horseback, a few canons, some warships, or possibly just a high school locker-room. People running and screaming doesn’t quite cut it, because I can imagine filming that 20 times and being able to use every take. In saying that, it was very pretty. Maybe it needs to be seen again to find out what all the commotion was about the precious antique cans.

The Unrested Soul

The acting in this film was very good. The curse of the ancients’ thing is a little overdone these days, but I do prefer thriller-horror to horror-horror. Not sure whether the stepmum died when she got hit by the train, although I guess none of it really happened in the end so it’s irrelevant? Possibly too much drama and story to pack into 7 minutes.

Lucky Last

Started out strong with nice comet effects and some very well done news broadcasts. After that it went flat with too much bowing to sponsors (don’t do that, it breaks the fourth wall in a very lame way) and nothing much else.

Tryst

Funny and well acted. I didn’t think the ending was all that ‘twisty’, but at least it was different to most rom-coms. It seems lesbian kisses don’t buy as much audience favour as they once did.

I double posted by accident and can't delete the duplicate review. I apologise.

Dying Antelope

An excellent take on the always terrifying musical/dance genre. Good use of a limited number of actors, done in a way that was just cheesy and self-aware enough and get away with it.

The List

Well acted, well shot, well paced and well ended. I would have rather the fight scene was more genuine as the hammy action didn’t really fit with the rest of the film. It was well done hammy action though. Deserving of audience favourite [he types begrudgingly…].
