| Loneliness
The start of this short struck a chord with me as the protagonist Christopher comments on going in to a hostess bar and jumping to the conclusion that the women in there were prostitutes . I too have had much experience of this in Pokhara Nepal where if you're a thin , speccy middle aged Scotsman with a receding hairline some hot local chick half your age will hold on to your arm and stick her finger in her mouth in an extremely suggestive manner while you buy her drinks all night . Very expensive drinks . , a small cocktail served in a champagne glass costing 700 Nepalese rupees ,about 5 pound sterling . After you've been buying her drinks all night the bar closes and she will give you her telephone number and is a phone number she never answers . I wasn't looking for sex ( Stop sneering up the back there ) and visited this place several times only to be mugged by the same Bollywood sex goddess wannabe every time . I did gain a revenge of sorts where knowing what was coming said I could only buy here one drink that night , so she spent the short evening scoffing most of my drink and rubbing ice cubes on my head . A waitress came over and gave me my bill . I put my hand in my pocket pulled out a wad of 1,000 rupee notes and saw the hostess giving me a murderous look:

" You did have money " she scowled

" Oh " I replied innocently " So I did " and stuck my finger in my mouth

I thought perhaps this reference in KARAOKE might lead to something else but it doesn't really . It does perhaps some up what the short film is about and to me it suggests the loneliness that often comes about living in a city even if you're constantly surrounded by other people in a metropolis like New York . This is reinforced by the number of scenes where Christopher is the solitary figure in the frame and that's my interpretation of it . I notice Bob has suggested watching it twice in order to understand it but to brutally honest it's not really a short I feel compelled to watch again and don't think it's anywhere as deep as it's hinting at but do agree it's well shot and has a very good look about it especially the scenes in the karaoke bar
