A dark, psychological comedy about a young man who first convinces his roommate, and then possibly himself, into thinking that he's a secret agent.
1 October 2004 | by cake_eating_tooSee all my reviews

Believe is the story of a young man who convinces his roommate that he's a secret agent. But he takes the joke just a little too far, and a little too seriously until our main character himself becomes deluded into possibly believing his own lie.

The main character's psychological delusions underscore the filmmaker's message that reality is indeed subjective and in the "eye of the beholder".

As short films go, this one of the most narratively ambitious and still successful efforts I've ever seen. The characters are great, the acting is solid and at times quite striking, the camera work is stellar, and the overall stylization is what you wish you would see more of in most Hollywood films. Kudos also to the score and sound design.

But what's most daring about the film is the filmmaker's challenge to the viewer to decide for his/herself what is 'reality'. If the main character believes something that may not be true, isn't it still true in the character's own mind? This is a darkly hilarious movie that warrants repeat viewings!
