Heavy Handed But Hillarious And Poignant Simultaneously
21 April 2019 | by EsotericReviewerSee all my reviews

Even though it's a short film (7 minutes, 22 seconds), they didn't skimp on quality (The credits run 2 minutes, 19 seconds. 10 minutes total running time). The acting is fantastic. I was particularly impressed by the acting of the boss and two panelists. They committed completely to their characters even though they must have found such characters very distasteful on a personal level (Catherine Tate intentionally or unintentionally dropped a hint about her feelings when she flipped the bird while stuffing a cookie into her mouth). The video editing was very tight. It was spot on. The sound track was very appropriate. The song during the credits was appropriate. The sound track mixing and editing were well done. This seems to have been a labor of love for many of the participants. One does feel that one has been bludgeoned by the heavy handed treatment given the various biases that impact the screening process and limit the dynamic range permitted a female actor. The only bias treated with subtlety is beautyism. Beautyism is handled so subtly it's not clear it was intended to be treated at all. I love this film.
