| A short starring Fassbender is never a waste of your time.
"Got A Light?"

In this 13 minute short directed by John Maclean, Michael and Liam are two professional thieves who are receiving instructions for their next heist. Their mission is to open a safe from an office that has a light activated alarm system so in order to do so they blindfold themselves so they can learn how to work in the dark. The short basically follows these two men who have just met and are waiting at a local pub for the green light to begin the heist.

This short caught my attention because it starred Michael Fassbender, one of my favorite actors working today. I had heard he was going to star in a Western action thriller alongside Ben Mendelsohn and directed by John Maclean. This film is going to be the director's feature debut but he had made a short back in 2011 which curiously starred Fassbender so I decided to give it a watch. I later learned that Pitch Black Heist won the Bafta for best short in 2012. Michael Fassbender plays Michael and Liam Cunningham is Liam. Both actors share great chemistry together and the scenes of them bonding together at the pub are entertaining. Just watching them talk to one another and share drinks while playing pool was reason enough for me to enjoy the film. But there is also a surprise twist at the end that worked well and made the experience all the more gratifying. The film however was shot in black and white so it took some of the pleasure away, but it still was a solid film with an entertaining script and strong performances.
