What a 1st AD!
I saw this film at a short film festival. It is a little strange, but very endearing. It drags you in to the world of Mr Larkin, and it delivers with such force. But what I really wanted to say was that while the story is great, the lighting quite good, the set design is interesting, it's the first AD that really grabbed my attention. Nobody ever really mentions the 1st AD in films. But in this film I felt that he really outshines all the other departments. I would have given the film 10 just for him. But it is a good story. I thought the old guy was rather convincing. It's good that old people still have a role in films today. I wonder where they found him, he is really quite good. My real praise goes to the spaceman. You just don't find that kind of acting anymore. He is outstanding. Such pathos, such emotion delivered with no more that a glove move. You really need to see this film for the amazing effects as well. It is a real fish! Really! All in all I loved this film. See it when you can.
