I loved this so much. The visual concept executed so brilliantly, and like Unedited Footage of a Bear, Alan Resnick approaches really dark, human ideas through such abstract and absurdist extremes. It might be an overstatement, but these past two shorts of his have shown David Lynch levels of artistic precision. This one especially really got to me, using everything in its clever setup to tell a story without TELLING the story. But the theme is clear and thorough (albeit perhaps the most explicit thing about the film), and brought to tragic extremes.
Wow I loved this. This is like a lost V/H/S segment, and subsequently would be one of the best ones.
Keep going, Resnick. I can't wait to see what you would do with a feature.
