Why Watch? This short is clever and playful even in the midst of a totalitarian society that forces people to make foam door-stoppers all day.
One man breaks away from the hive mind when he finds a machine that plays music. It’s got a little nod to Shawshank and one of the hands-down, all-time best surprise moments of short film history.
Don’t believe me? See for yourself. This thing does not go where you think it should.
What Will It Cost? Just ten minutes of your time.
Does it get better any better than that? Only if we yelled at you over a PA system while you watched. Check out Bartholomew’s Song for yourself:
