Why Watch? After Rian Johnson’s Looper hit theaters, I was a little surprised that more filmed fan fiction didn’t overwhelm the internet. Here was a ready-made universe that blended time travel and noir, practically begging for more adventures.
Fortunately, Olaf Blomerus took his amazing name and answered the call. The result is an intense bite of a teaser-style short that delivers thanks to wicked CGI work and an ambiguous gun-toting threat. With cold brew dialogue and smoke in its eyes, the short pulls off the feat of being wholly satisfying while also making you ache to see more. Endgame Entertainment needs to commission an Animatrix style set and have Blomerus at the top of their call sheet.
What Will It Cost? About 4 minutes
