    Hey Simon,

    Just caught the flick. Gotta say, really enjoyed it. Not much of a story there, but a hell of a good abstact film.

    While being a simple film, it doesn't seem to be a simple concept. AND you handled the simplicity with enough complexity to really really make it shine. The sound, acting, look, art direction, modd (and by mood I mean the tension) for sure were all top notch. And man did it look like you were enjoying that cigarette drag. Man.

    So, as everyone has mentioned, the wall socket. But, as you know, the devil is in the details, especially with a piece as simple as this. Everything has to look intentional and for I'd say 95% of it, it looks that way. And so the wall socket carries so much more weight (I wasn't a fan of being able to see the edge of the white wall either).

    Maybe something a bit more narrative next time? OH, who cares? You did this really well and I enjoyed it. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

    Simon,

    Well, I didn't notice the wall socket. All in all the film wasn't for me. Just my personal taste. But you did a good job. LOVED the titles. The titles make me smile, man. Probably my fav credits in the fest so far. I did like the ending. When he opens his shirt.... Nice.

    Good Job!

    I really don't understand the story. The whole story looks like an anti smoking ad with a murder scene :-) Maybe you could have added some details to tell the viewers why the two guys were seating there. It's a little bit boring to watch the whole movie with just one scene. Also, the footages look washed out. Other than the above problems, your movie is nice. Congrats!

    Loved the opening and closing credits! Awesome. The production design of the film was cool, with the black and white, and that cool clock.

    I didn't really get it, but it didn't bore me. I found the actions of the characters interesting.

    Loved the guy reading a blank white book.

    I would have liked to have been able to understand this more, but it was fun. Keep up the good work!

    I really liked it!

    I liked the score - It complimented the sound design very well. The foley felt a bit over the top though, which at times works to feel the irritation of the guy in white. It could be somewhat softer in the mix though.

    Nicely done. I liked watching something that was experimental/abstract.. Good job with the editing/pacing, it managed to keep my attention throughout the story which is hard considering how little is actually going on. Score and sound design were well executed as well and helped maintain my focus.

    A nice take on Sartre's "No Exit". (No Air, No Exit).

    I thought your piece was very well done. It did drag a little (but only a little)....could've been tightened some....but overall it was very good.

    My friend and I have been trying to write our version of "No Exit".....but we keep struggling with the idea of 'how' not to bore the audience with a one room shot (especially here in the USA....with all the short attention spans and ADD). I really do love what you have done here. Great job!

    Not to thread hijack, but here's an example of a (more or less) one room short that is definitely anything but uninteresting, haha. And no, it's not a rickroll. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ge2FHDf_L78

    Loved the design, good sound, liked your actors.

    Really bothered me that in the wide shot the actors were much further from the mid line then the mid shots. Loved the look and it was a great beginning of an idea but the end didn't really make sense to me... I think you had a great setup for something but it didn't go much of anywhere which is weird to say considering it ended with a murder... perhaps it was supposed to just be abstract and not have a point, or we see that the white guy is black underneath so like good and evil are an illusion? I dunno... and the fact that I don't know is what makes the piece feel weak to me...

    It was very original though and a nice change of pace! I'd love to see it reworked a little because then you'd really have something.

    Very interesting, not sure what to think. Its good at what it is, but I'm not sure what that would be. Good job though!
