    Great acting, Alex Manich! A somber and reflective moving story. A wonderful seamless presentation with an excellent flow thanks to Mike Weldon. Modern and flowing sound by Nick Nylon. This film has a kewl pace and is an excellent morality tale. Does one spend ones life in a Kafka Office Cubical or leave the Drone Gray Skyscraper and security............Or leave the Grey Box... read

    I understand the theme of this piece, but it just didn't resonate for me. Not for spiritual reasons but because it was too long. This could've been a thirty second commercial and it would have more of an impact. The stock footage and city shots in the beginning lasted 2 minutes! I was like "okay, I get it". And most people gave the same response. There were some variety... read

    This definitely feels like a scene for a bigger story so I'll try to focus with that in mind. I enjoyed the camera work and the lighting and sound. From a technical standpoint everything holds up. The acting wasn't very good however. The performances felt rushed. Watch your swearing. I'm not saying censor yourself but when characters just say fuck over and over to sound... read

    Your film does boast of some good acting, but somehow the feel is very dated. It's a good angle but not a great one. The feel is that it is from 90's. The production quality is below average. Yet, I see a lot of potential in you as a filmmaker. Good Luck!

    I liked the idea and you show a great point of view as a filmmaker by showing a classic scene about the mental state of a man pushed too far at a soul crushing job, but I felt like you went a little too far with the believability and the short stretched into a full blown cartoon. It was just too wacky for my taste. The guy on the phone was way too unrealistic. No one calls... read

    I respect people who have the courage to go for something unconventional and funky. But it was hard for me to appreciate your creativity in this project, because it was never made clear why this documentary was made nor what it's really about. If we don't learn anything about the store, its owners, its products, costumers, and its location, I find it hard to accept this project... read

    The world has been wiped out (or almost wiped out) by a crazy/deadly disease... Yes, the premise is not the most original and yet you have managed to find a different angle. A disease that make the victim inflict pain to themselves? And then we find out that all of the crazy myths of these days - hey where is the Reptilian theory? - are the cause! My only problem with this... read

    By ending the film the way you did, I felt like the man behind the phone is the true protagonist of the film. Yet we never get to know him; we're never given any information on what he's been through, in order for us to understand why he intentionally ruins so many people's lives. Of course it's interesting to observe the victims struggle, but, in this case, I would have... read

    The production quality of this short all look and feel high. This comes across as a passion piece with a specific point of view from the writer and director. I did enjoy the cinematography. But this overall feels like style over substance with an ambitious project that doesn't quite fit in ten minutes. This would work better as a feature or a forty five minute short film... read
  • A review of Respect 101
    by linusonline on 06/09/2014
    Suspense vs surprise. That was the biggest downside to this piece which comes across more as a scene in a bigger story than a self-contained short in of itself. Don't get me wrong, the story is in capable hands, but the construction of the scene feels strange. Why did he let the kid go? Why go through all that to do of planting a fake victim, giving him a non lethal dose... read

    by Nidhi on 06/09/2014
    I liked the photography and the edit. The frame rate of this film was not right. Became jarring to see after a while. Don't know if that is the effect you wanted to keep. Acting, mediocre, so was the production quality. The surprise element doesn't really take you by surprise. Good Luck!

    by Nidhi on 06/09/2014
    Why is this such a fantastic film to be put here? Relieved that it was short. If somebody wants to watch something like what you have put there, one can watch educational you tube videos. This was boring, no story, no character. Sorry thumbs down from my side. Good luck.

    There is obviously a lot of reference to history. I liked how you mixed a lot of media together and also the classic background score. But what was this film trying to covey, beats me! Please take care to avoid shadows next time you film. Production quality and lighting are ordinary. Inserts are good.

    Loved it! You can definitely convert this idea into a feature! The camera n edit is exceptional. The only thing that didn't impress me was the background score. Computer graphics are ordinary but effectively take the story forward! I wish you get a big budget to make this film as a feature. Good luck!

    Not sure what to make of this piece. I wish there was more to this story. Sadly it's filled with bad acting and poor writing. Nothing about this was particularly interesting as all this appeared to be was a couple arguing and stating exactly how they feel. No subtext at all. Maybe this is a small piece of a bigger picture and everything is out of context, but I was left wondering... read
