Victimology

I thought early on while watching this that it was going to be cringeworthy but after the first initial scene it got better and better and better. I just wish there was more to the film. The indian was hilarious!

Caretaker

I feel wrong breaking the flow here. But I didn't get the story. Was there something spooky about the house that I am meant to know about? She killed her son? Totally confused. Must have been your friends that wrote the comments because they are way too positive. Production was consistent, some dodgy audio. Great work for a 48 film but I didn't understand it. I asked everyone that came with me to the heat and they didn't get it either. Sorry....

Singularity

Umm I would normally write a little blurb at the top of my review to give people an idea of the story, but I have no idea what the story is here so I am just gonna leave it there.

The Hanged Man

This was an "ok" film with somewhat of a blurry story. The production was consistent and the acting was "ok" but overall I didn't really get it.

Dystension

This team has been around for a long time now, and they are a threat to others in this heat thats for sure! The film is more a moment in time than a standard narrative. It's heavy voice over gives us enough exposition to understand what's happened to the world, but I was left wanting more story. I wanted to know our protagonist better and understand him. I felt like the jokes got in the way of what 'could have been'. It just felt like it was 60-70% of the way there then stopped and ended with an incredibly crass shock gag. Overall it was clever in places, shot well enough and just needed more story to make it really feel like a great narrative. Just look passed your own gags and give more next time (in my opinion).

WTF

I know this got second but... I'm not sure why. The acting seemed wooden to me, and the execution was boring. There was nothing inventive or edgy about it. If you're going to make a 48hours film you need to stand out, and this film doesn't. I've already forgotten at the bits I thought I found funny... All I'm left thinking is: "is the weirdo guy in the sweater that weird in real life? Because if he is, that's funny. And, does he have human friends that he talks to?". As I write this, I'm trying to think of something positive to say... and all I can say is that the best acting was by the woman who knocked on the door. Possibly the best acting I've seen in all of the heats I've been to. It's like someone who was hungover was inspired by The Hangover, then decided to write about someone who was hungover. Then when that person struggled with the script, they decided to beat the hangover by drinking while writing, then this happened. It actually felt like the writer had too much confidence and phoned it in. Because there was the start of something, it just needed to be 10 times better. The camerawork gave this film a base. A base that saved the film. If the camerawork was as bad as the acting or the script, you would have all been f%@&ed. #womanatthedoor

Jour du Biscuit

Sorry not a fan, introducing people for what felt like 3 minutes really made it hard to watch.
