I watched this film in the heats. It had some really gripping moments, graphic violence and intense acting and that made it a very memorable short.
The short focusses on a mum and dad who have lost their daughter and blame a retarded postman called Kerry. They capture the postman, chain him up and smash him around to try and get some answers.
I liked the way we were left not knowing what happens. I liked the way you tapped into the fact that people can act irrationally when they dont believe justice has been served, but overall I wasn't a fan of this short, and that is for one reason... I am a father. I can't imagine something this sinister ever happening to my child, and I am not going to enjoy watching a film with this content matter. It hits a bit close to home for me... I dont want anything bad to happen to children in the films I watch. But this is just how I felt watching it...
Solid acting, a well-told story that I felt ended how it should have. I didn't feel that you nailed the great genre you were given, (but your film did focus on a crime, so that counts) and I'm not sure how many films this year will have slow-motion shots of leaves falling to the ground, but I'd probably need to take my shoes off to start counting them.
Oh, and I loved your team intro! Its great to see what other work you've been doing in the competition in that way. Nice.
