Harry Dean Stanton,
"Absurd Encounter with Fear" is a 2-minute short film that will have its 50th anniversary next year and was made by the pretty famous and prolific filmmaker David Lynch during the early years of his career. It is about what happens when a man and a woman meet in a corn field. The woman is played by David Lynch's first wife Peggy, the man is Jack Fisk, who later became a 2-time Oscar nominee in completely different fields than acting, namely for art direction and production design, also very recently on "The Revenant". So yeah, the story in this film here is not too good and Lynch did not succeed to create a memorable experience in these 120 seconds. Of course, this is also a major challenge. In terms of style, he delivers nicely as usual in terms of visuals and audio. But that is not enough to let me recommend the film. Thumbs down.
