    Nice work! Creepy thriller feel.I really like the way the train sequence resurfaced and the final twist. Clearly a well thought out and executed short. Nice job!

    Really nice film, AJ. Some very strong elements overall. Fantastic cinematography and your lead actress Geppina was top notch-very impressed with her. I liked the use (but not overuse) of flashbacks, like Kurtmo said, the train sequence resurfacing and last twist was pretty effective.

    Maybe a little confusing, but it seemed to resolve well. Excellent work!

    Your a very talented filmmaker AJBrooks and I recall admiring the ideas and subversive elements in your films Red and the Wolf and Voices in the Dark. Now this film is a bold foray i think into a wealth of subject matter, the loss of loved ones, of self-control, of mind and of body. The production is sophisticated and well shot and nicely performed. Where I feel it could have been improved, is a strong focus on the communication of the fundamental story elements and ideas you are expressing. There were times when i felt a little overwhelmed by the variety of ideas/present/flashback/revelations being thrown at me leading to a little confusion. While I gathered most of them, it made me wonder wheter some moments in the film - as regards to pace and atmosphere, could have been better suited to explaining a bit more about your character and her experiences.

    Now I say this and i don't mean that to come across as overt criticism, as I did enjoy your film, and it fits upon afine pantheon of very stylistic and thought provoking works you are producing.

    Very good work AJ. You actually pulled off something I was attempting to do (but I failed) and that's make a complete story with NO dialogue. I really admire that. It was lit beautifully and I loved the piece with the piano. The first time you saw the figure I found that pretty dam creepy too. Your cinematic eye is getting better and better with each film. I love stories that are told visually. The fx work was also great.

    The ending confused me a little because it seemed (if I grasped it correctly) that this memory had been buried since childhood? Just seemed odd that this was the first time as a woman she had confronted it since it happened. I was left wondering why now is the memory resurfacing? Also to just realise you only have one arm after all this time seemed like a stretch to me. But I still enjoyed it for its cinematic style and presentation.

    Very nice looking short. I didn't buy that he couldn't get that girls foot out so I'm glad that was switched. It just didn't look that stuck. His was though, reminded me of Fried Green Tomatoes. Right down to him trying to undo the laces.

    Great visuals throughout, nice twist at the end. It's tough to tell a story this way and you did it admirably.

    Note; the piano noise seemed off when it finally sounded. Way over to one channel. I've had some sound issues with my upload as well so maybe that's what it was.

    Nice work.

    Mike
