Not a convincing start for Arnold
29 July 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Milk" is a 10-minute live action short film from Great Britain and it was released in 1998, which means it will soon have its 20th anniversary. The writer and director here is Andrea Arnold, an Oscar winner today and this one here was her very first work, even if she was already way into her 30s. A bit of a late bloomer perhaps. But still she had a pretty strong career in the last 20 years, so good for her. I cannot say I appreciate her rookie project here though. The directing was solid, but the script was weak and unrealistic on quite a few occasions. This is fairly disappointing. It sucks especially because I felt that all the actors did a decent job here with what they were given and they certainly elevated the material. This could have been a pretty good film given the talent that Arnold had at her disposal here. But she did not make the most of it actually. Well, you have to learn, don't you? I don't recommend the watch. Thumbs down.
