  • A review of Respect 101
    by Martin Zima on 03/24/2014
    Well, I totally haven't expected the ending. First of all, I must lift up the main character and work with him. Nice exposition of hist attitudes, backstory, that gives urgency to his action, the police sirens, injection sprayed into the eye of one of the captives... All that does not give us rest, until the final fight, when the "last man standing/laying" is as desperate as... read

    This is my third review of another unclassifiable Elmerlang's work. His style is kind of starting to grow a bit - hopefully not like an ingrown toenail though - on me. Kind-a. Perhaps I am one of those people who when they see comedy, romance and sci-fi/fantasy wants to see a tale/a narrative/an account/a yarn/a legend... with all of the above rather then experimental work... read
  • A review of Celebration
    by max sappa on 03/25/2014
    Let's celebrate the acting and the cinematography and then... Well, this is a 9 minute version of a something that was longer? Shorter? I dunno! Well for now I'd say that it feels a bit long for a story that you see coming. Of course, I did expect an elimination/killing/execution at some point and yet by the end of it I was begging to come as fast as possible. The beginning... read
  • A review of Lonely Joe (Final)

    Great short! Believe me, you wont finish watching this film with a straight face. Very well thought, witty variation of a well known biblical story, well not necessarily that one, but one that has been repeating itself for ages. Its well paced and scripted, as said before the dialogue is very witty. Enjoyed this short! Keep up the good work.
  • A review of Rituals
    by max sappa on 03/25/2014
    Here I was thinking 'I don't want to watch another Elmer Lang' film and I was righ...wrong... so wrong. I really liked Rituals. Your talent (the man) re-told the Orwell's stories so well and with conviction (this guy has lived life... yes lived) that when I saw the credits appearing I was a tad sad. Good... actually beautiful work.

    Innovative idea, definetly the first time I heard of someone callin in dead to work! Positives: - good original idea - convincing acting - good pacing, - well written dialogue Negatives: - Intro music is cut prematurely. I know it was the intention to make abrubt transition from the intro to the 1st scene, but you should let the music play out its final tone and then make... read
  • A review of Book of James
    by Nidhi on 03/25/2014
    What is the purpose of this story? It has Act-1 and Act-3 but Act-2 is clearly missing. When you made this film, what character growth did you set for the two altar boys? Neither do I see any plot. The only good thing is that you have two characters, one location and good camerawork. Sound could have been better.

    Love the premise but what exactly is the plot. There is the beginning and the end but sadly the middle is missing. The light is not right, neither does the film seem color corrected. Though the camera angles were good considering how tight it is to shoot in a car. The male actor shows a lot of promise.
  • A review of The Carved Pumpkin
    by Martin Zima on 03/26/2014
    Kinda surrealistic movie with so many action (dynamic) scenes, that the final "point" was hidden among them. But it's your accent of movement what makes your movie interesting. The way you vut the pumpkin or follow the watter tap. The thing I'm not sure about is sound - that constant noise sure had to induce some atmosphere, but I'd prefer somenthing less distracting. Maybe... read

    I asked for a short film assignment by mistake. I was looking for a short story to review, but this little film was really fun to watch. I've seen quite a few indie animated films so I'm qualified to say that Carrot Kid has a real sense of cinema and some of the sequences look like they were a lot of work - e.g. the eyes spewing innards. The synth and EFX score works really... read
  • A review of The Battle Below
    by chessaol on 03/28/2014
    This is an art film for after the apocalypse fans. We are not sure of the exact apocalypse but it is unimportant. The main character Derek returns to his old neighborhood to join the fight, His old girlfriend is there and their relationship is cold and distant. There is no spark there at all. The other actors: The first victor is unconvincing even though his part is well... read
  • A review of The Forest
    by chessaol on 03/28/2014
    The film is about a girl saving the queen? There are two girls and a dark witch (played by my ex-wife) and a white witch but no queen I could make out. The storyline was cloudy and confusing. There were excellent costumes and beautiful people dressed in white. The bad people were heavily made up in dark eye and lipstick makeup. The costuming was excellent. The dead body became... read

    The storyline was narrated and the scene was well scripted. When the second actor got lines they seamlessly mingled with the story. The actors fit their parts and all were well and naturally played. Sound was loud enough and every word was there. Accents can be difficult for those unused to them but the actor spoke very distinctly and there was no problem. The film quality... read

    I'm really creeped out by your work. I was just assigned another one of yours 'Haiku + 1' from a few years back and just removed it. I'm not sure how many submissions you've put here to clog up the stream, but its definitely working- people are forced to watch these youtube, experimental videos. I thought your rhythm with the song was fine, and you definitely love to watch... read

    I looked at the film twice. I wanted to double check my first impressions, as I had the feeling they were only reactionary, rather than thoughtful. The second time around I saw that this was an autobiography of the filmmaker, dealing with issues of self-acceptance, reactions to 'outside' world (violence or non-violence), utopia not being found, sense of victim and protest,... read
