    It’s interesting to see one oscar winner after another having been awarded the much coveted prize even though the finished product is done with bland editing, very poor acting, and off the wall lightning. Again shows the prize has very little to do with the films winning them.

    I enjoyed the narrative center of this liittle short; so much happens and yet so little takes place.. I also thought James Remar was excellent in the lead..
