Best short film
16 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Spike Jonze and Kanye West work together on this short film that has an extremely creepy feel to it, but is also a really good flick. The film has several unfocused scenes meant to show that Kanye is drunk, which gets slightly annoying at times. Playing the main rile, Kanye did a surprisingly good job in acting, especially at the ending. The animation was spectacular, and I have been thinking about the video a lot lately. In my opinion, a good movie is one that you think about for days to come after viewing it. Much like; THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, and DONNIE DARKO. I thought about those for days. So although this movie hand an dark sense to it, it really portrayed itself well. I for one haven't seen many short films, but of the ones I have seen, this one is my favorite. If you can't handle creepy videos then don't watch this. I also would like to say that I never hand out A "10" to a movie because no movie is perfect. But as far as short films go, this one was dang good.
