    You never know who you are going to meet and sometimes a chance encounter can change everything. A nice short film, well directed and acted, the also proves opposites can attract. What I also liked about this is, with editing and camera work, there was an uneasy sense of danger with the driving and I half expected there to be a collision with some other car. It was a very... read
  • A review of Breakdown
    by Bill Albert Author on 10/04/2014
    A very nice and well thought out film with more than one meaning and lots of things going on. Breakdown refers to more than just the truck they are driving and I liked the way it plays out. Both characters have to be honest with themselves and each other about what the are doing and where they are going. They also have to face the fact that sometimes honesty can hurt. A... read

    It's a difficult film to decipher and I watched it twice to get the hang of it. Some interesting choices in editing with almost half of it made up of a man driving across streets after a storm. There are moments where it makes a sudden change to something new that really stand out. After the dark silhouette of the driver the sudden light and clear image of him is a bit shocking... read
  • A review of Pictures By My Mama
    by Bill Albert Author on 10/04/2014
    This film is a beautiful, feel good piece in tribute to an important woman. Looking at a remarkable woman in a difficult era who really had to face what was happening. I was curious at first because "Pictures BY My Mama" is such an odd title but you get to see things by both the filmmaker and his mother's eyes and it works well with music and pacing. I really liked this... read

    This film has allot of heart. It is a parade of life. The film is full of fun, laughter and smiling faces. Isn't that what we should be doing with our lives? Enjoying the ride. The film is a wonderful celebration of fun and life. The protesters are like little black thunder clouds that may appear in the sky. They float away. Laughter is the best medicine. Life is too short... read

    Just how dark can a film get????? Well, this one slinks along at a smooth pase. Sofia Stefon plays an excellent bitch of all bitches. Really! The music ", I feel your energy," by the Passion," adds to the seedy tone of this off beat taste of film noir. The crew did an excellent job. I feel like I turned off the main highway and into a back alley... where anything can and will... read

    by EugyBizzaro on 10/03/2014
    This is a well acted somber film. In the end one discovers that life just goes on. The timing and filming are good. My hat is off to the crew. This film is a little dark for my usual taste but I give it a rose. There is no divine in revenge. It just is what it is. Ba dah bing! TY E.B.
  • A review of THE MAFIA TYPE
    by Untitled8 on 10/01/2014
    I have not reviewed a short film on TS in quite a long time. It was first a bit startling to be reviewing a film that was posted 8 years ago, and even more startling to remember how abysmal the quality of the video compression on the site used to be. I really hope the levels have changed since then. A few of my thoughts, and constructive criticisms for the film were that I... read

    I have watched a few of your shorts based upon Peanuts (my favourite comic strip of all time) and I have to admit that the idea of seeing 'our friends' as adults is appealing. In fact, very appealing. That is why, the stories of these shorts should be stronger/sharper than just seeing Linus as a pot-head-slacker-behind-with-his-rent-telling-the-story-of-the-Great-Pumpkin. But... read

    Wow! Kudos on landing the name talent, not an easy feat for the run of the mill "filmmaker". Overall not bad, the production value is pretty low, but the story is ok. I always thought Don would make an awesome don in a gangster flick, Nickie the nose style, given the chance I think he could knock it out of the park. But in a world of bubblegum and superhero movies, not easy... read

    This is an excellent film and would like to see more of it. There are a lot of very well thought out things going on here and it smoothly covers some very complicated topics quite subtly. Everything comes together to create two believable characters in a realistic situation and environment. Well done.

    by Bill Albert Author on 09/27/2014
    This is a nice little film using what was available to tell a short story. Is it a dram or a premonition? I don't know but it is a very good use of editing and sound to make a nice adventure. Only think that would have made it better would be a little surprise or two at the end.

    A short, sweet, well thought out film here. Truly interesting and thought provoking and I liked it a lot. Excellent choices in actors to tell the entire story. My only complaint is it just seemed to long. The opening credits were slow and ponderous and to much voice over black before anything gets started. They say that when you die your life flashes before your eyes.... read
  • A review of Maximum Reality
    by Bill Albert Author on 09/26/2014
    As someone who has always felt the whole "reality TV" things was a pile of crap I really think this film is right. It shows just how dangerous those kind of shows are and it is 100% believable that this couple could do this to an innocent person. It's so real it is difficult to watch and I mean that in it's supposed to be that way. Well done.
  • A review of Like Bloody Lips
    by grimmfilmservices on 09/26/2014
    At first I was wondering if somebody really stabbed Elmer Lang. I can think of a couple of ways that might have happened. One thing I know for sure, that can't be the shirt he was wearing. No bloody lip stains around the cut. After hearing familiar music in the opening, seeing the stock footage, and noticing that this is from 2007, I find myself remembering more current... read
