Middle of the road short film.
12 November 2001 | by kevin_simsSee all my reviews

Peter Weller directs a decent middle of the road short film here. It was nominated for an oscar but I may have missed something with my viewing experience. 5 out of 10 here. If it was longer, I think it would have been a much better story. It seems like Weller tried to cram a feature length story into the short film genre and the film suffered. I think this would actually make an excellent feature length film.
