Well done...
Really interesting concept here. Not bad for a 24-hour film. Not bad at all.

When it first started, I thought I had it figured out. Though, admittedly, I didn't know who the three guys were. And why, if they were giving a formal interview, they appeared to be wearing sort of everyday clothes.

But once that little detail about the three dead sons came out, it got good.

The music was perfect I thought. Well done there. Chilling and haunting. Set the mood just right.

Wasn't crazy about the opening camera angles though. Was there a reason for that?

All in all, well done.

Like she was pleading with... read

Is that the image you were hoping to conjure up? He was smart, witty and incredibly flawed. But I liked him. Every he time he handed out his business card: "Here...in case your husband wants to have you followed." Gold... read

    If this ever got produced, I could totally see myself hating it the first time around, then loving it as I watched it over and over again. Do you know what I mean? (Take that as a compliment.) Sort of like with Napoleon Dynamite. I didn’t get it and therefore didn’t care for it the first time around. But then it started to grow on me. Like a fungus. Both Norm and Mort are... read
