WITNESS INFECTION Film Review

Because human remains and “the pasquinade teeth of Vito Morelli” were somehow grounded into Tablioni’s famous meat sausage that everyone craves, residents in the California town, if not the state or the rest of the country, are at risk of becoming human shish kabobs and slop-sloppy Joes – and zombies.

THE ACCOUNTANT Film Review

This sagaciously witty production serves as a reminder of the creative ingenuity that can make a short film as aesthetically sumptuous as a regular feature. In the course of 35 minutes, an important message is expressed subtly but in depth and through exquisite acting and the Oscar-winning plot.

DAVID Film Short Review

It’s easy for this reviewer to imagine that everyone in an audience wherever DAVID streams is standing and applauding as this film comes to an end. This film can knock a smile off your face in one shot and immediately return it the next. In DAVE, his first, Director Zach Woods’ deft filmmaking can make you feel that you have to see it more than once.

THE LAST OUT Film Review

Eighty-four minutes of riveting cinematography. An edge-of-your-seat, bittersweet, smashingly lensed story about the fates of three young promising Cuban ballplayers dreaming of making it big in Major League Baseball in the States. Because of the U.S. embargo against Cuba, however, Cuban ball players like them who want to be signed to big contracts must leave their homes to try to establish residency in The Dominican Republic, Haiti or Costa Rica. This Caribbean rite of passage means players must trek the dangerous Central American migrant trail where bodies and atrocities never stop piling up.

TO CALM THE PIG INSIDE (Originally ANG PAGPAKALMA SA UNOS) Film Review

Eighten-plus-minutes of exquisite black and white imagery of the gruesome and the horrific rendered beautifully in a narrative using folklore about the ungodly desolation caused by Super Typhoon Yolanda AKA Super Typhoon Haiyan, a Category 5 mega-monster that started laying siege to the Philippines Visayas group of islands, the country’s central region, population 17 million people, November 26, 2013. It shook the Philippines to its roots.
This stunning film short is winning one award after another.
