The full synopsis kind of reminded me of the story arc for Shrike in The Hungry Cities quadrilogy.
I've seen this shit already.. a few times, actually. And I'm sick of the bullshit "looks better than most movies!"
No, it doesn't. It looks awesome for a short with "no budget" (every movie has SOME budget; the props had to be paid for SOME how, and even if you didn't pay for the time/filming it's still there) but it is JUST a short.
I like how I've stumbled this on each and every Gawker site now. Same article, same layout, different header.
Someone get these guys a contract!
