It’s my favorite of the three SparkShorts released so far and much darker than what I associate with Pixar. There was a time around Ratatouille and Wall-E when I was hoping Pixar would aim more adult, but that was many years ago. So this was a bit shocking.

I liked the simple premise, the look, the sound and the performance. Once we get past the crashing waves the film really begins. Well made, but I don't care for the enigmatic ending. As if there was nowhere to take the suspenseful setup..

I sort of assumed this ending as anything else would have been too convient or more anti-climatic given the length.  But it was well done. If Buried can be a full feature so could this.  Though I didn’t like Buried but then there is always a 127Hours.

My film, Been Busy, is now available here.

Per its letterboxd description:

"One brother, one sister. He returns home, she stays still. They are apart and for brief moments they are together. The melodrama is built of fragments of everyday life – interrupted by things which cannot be explained. In other words, a fiction film."

Let me know what you think.

Thanks. Let me know what you think. It's been called the Best American Horror Film of the Year... although that is a very, very eccentric reading (the passing of time is horrific, it's true).

Something must've changed considerably since I watched the rough cut.

Like I said, it's a very eccentric reading of the film - "Horror is mostly a sort of facing death against an impossible/unbeatable/unshakable Force. When Time is somehow so focused and well staged, almost by default you're going into the Horror Arena!!"

It made me laugh a lot.
