I usually loiter on IMDb and I hardly ever post a comment, but I thought I needed to come to the defense of one of the best short films I have seen in some time. I am not sure what kind of plankton planktonrules is smoking, but I think this film is very original and a refreshing break from the usual "I just got out of film school now let me show you what I learned" dribble I keep seeing over and over. This film is very memorable, chaotic, shocking, intense and full of energy. It is very well written with several twist to the plot all within 10 minutes. I totally get what the filmmakers were going for. You feel like you are right in the middle of an episode of COPS where everything went bad. The sh*t hit the fan and it just got all over you the viewer. The acting is very good by all cast members, and they made me feel as if I was in the room with them wondering who was who. They did a lot better than the actors in the remake. I got a chance to view the Amsterdam remake while visiting Holland last year and they didn't do the original justice. It looked like they shot it all on a tripod and it lost all it's energy and intensity. Stick with the original, all American, "Bad People"!
