| When is a western not a western?
A suburban dad fantasizes about being a cowboy in this witty and understated short film, which swept most of the awards at the 48 Hour Film Festival in Philadelphia in 2006.

The lead character is completely deluded--he lives in a modern-day suburb and works as a Web site map-maker but he's always in cowboy boots and a hat, and his appearances are accompanied by a spot-on soundtrack of spaghetti western or honky-tonk piano music. His wife's a paragon of long-suffering virtue, trying to bring her husband back into the real world without ever coming over as shrill or shrewish. And their young son avoid a spoiler, let's just say he's his father's son.

This is only a short film, but it's a good example of the form. It moves nicely along, and includes just enough color to prevent it seeming rushed. In short, it's a real treat.
