| Wow, is this a weird one!
When this short film begins, you are immediately struck by the set design and props. Aside from the main character, all the other "people" are white mannequins with what looks almost like television screens for heads. What also is very arresting is the "assembly line" quality of the film. The guy doesn't walk but is whisked along on a conveyor belt for much of the film. Given that short films these days invariably have very low budgets, it's a testament to this film that they managed such a flashy looking and futuristic look with what must have only been a few thousand dollars.

As for the story, it's very weird as well and is, for a while, very slow and repetitive. This is intentional, as the story appears to be about alienation and detachment. Just bear with it--the film manages to end very well and make quite a profound statement about life or perhaps society or perhaps our modern world or perhaps it's just intended to make our heads hurt! All I know is that the film hooked me and really had an impact by the time it was complete. Give this one a look.
