A wonderful short film
10 March 2001 | by guy_lazarusSee all my reviews

"Don't Think Twice" is quite wonderful. It's well shot, and the acting is fine, but what I like is that everything, from the lighting, to the composition of the frame, to the dialogue perfectly underscores the theme of duality and duplicity. I also found it humorous, though I don't beleve everyone will; it is a pretty dark vision, both literally and figuratively.
