Review of: Fitzroy Square 

reviewed by SaintSinnerCEO on 04/08/2012
A swing, but a miss!
Fitzroy Square looks pretty cool with it's black and white tone, but doesn't deliver much else in my opinion. I've never been a fan of using music over dialogue fully and it didn't work again in this short. Room tone and the subtitles would have worked, especially since the majority of the film is subtitled. Now to the subtitles, not the best execution of them, sometimes they went a bit fast in the dialogue between the men in the film, and weren't correct in grammar sometimes, which I realize is nitpicking.

The full black screen with low dialogue in the middle of the film was confusing as I was unaware what was going on, I mean, I can guess, but it might be better to depict on screen who's talking whether by words or video.

The end death was unbelievable from the actor standpoint, just not played well, came off funny more then ominous.

Again, I give credit for the cool black and white video, but thumbs down for the rest. Keep moving forward though and making more work. All the best.

    Finding Dennis is fantastic short film work by this filmmaker. It's direction, it's acting, it's cinematography, it's sharp, interesting editing to go with a very good score made this short a winner for sure with me. The only thing I wish is that I got more story behind these two characters because the short buildup in this film made me wanna know more. This seems like it could... read

    A Doll Named Charlotte is a short film that has the right and best intentions for it's overall purpose as creepy horror cinema, it just technically lacks in places. For me personally the acting was the huge deterrent, it's not good, especially from the lead male in the face, and for me, if the acting is bad from the lead in a film, it hurts the overall product. I do realize... read
