What an amazing short film! I saw this on the "buh" channel on youtube (which is somehow associated to JASH but I honestly have no idea how) and I was completely taken by it.
For those who don't know: buh is a comedy channel which showcases a lot of really interesting styles of humor. A lot of the videos are very, very strange and really aren't for the close-minded. This short film was among them and I have to say, it's one of the best videos on the channel.
Now, I've noticed in the comments that a lot of people don't see how this film is funny but they must've never heard of black comedy. If you don't understand how it's funny, then you really must broaden your "comedic horizons" if you will. Notice I said UNDERSTAND. You can not like it as long as you understand how and why it's comedic.
Anyways, this film does a fantastic job of showcasing irritability, anxiety, and what happens when someone who is irritable and anxious gets pushed too far and then thrown into a situation (not gonna spoil things for people who haven't seen it!) they never imagined themselves being in. I have to say, the ending was fantastic. About as dark as dark humor gets!
Gillian Jacobs does an amazing job here. I'm only familiar with her work on Community but based off of that, I'd have to say she shows some SERIOUS acting chops in this. The sound design and editing also deserve praise for really capturing the woman's perception. The cinematography is also very well done. It's nothing too crazy or new but it still looks really good.
i really, really felt this one and I love to see people pushing the boundaries of comedy in whatever way they can. :)
