Darkly funny and punchy in how quickly it escalates
This little comedy short is quite dark but appealing because of how tightly it is structured. Very early in the film we are in familiar territory where we see a relationship where one partner has started to become irritated by everything the other one does to the point that even small things feel huge and things that were perhaps once charming no longer seem that way; it is a situation many can relate to whether they have been the subject of this or the cause (for me usually I am the latter case). So far so familiar but then the film quickly escalates from this to be much more extreme in content.

At first I felt that the place it went to was almost too dark and cruel since there was a certain amount of lingering on the violence of the situation; in his comment Theo said some of the film was mean spirited and, while I don't agree totally, I do see where he was coming from since at least once the camera lingered on suffering a bit too much. This aside though I thought the film escalated with a nicely comic tone and although ultimately it is pretty dark as a concept, I also found it quite amusing. The delivery is mostly good at this and keeps things snappy while the central performance from Jacobs.

It is not an amazing short film but it has a rich vein of darkness which it works in a funny way by how quick and punchy the delivery is since it is the impact of the events more than the actual content of them that makes the film work.
