Redhanded - Edward Andrews
The darker the comedy, the more likely I am to attach my attention to it. Redhanded is one of those rare dark comedies that hits all the dark buttons. A jogger is running off the beaten path in an attempt to slim down a bit. He comes across a dead body, then he has to take care of business, which leads to him having to take care of the kind of business he just had to take care of. It'll make sense when you see it. The script is good, the lead is funny, the timing is dead-on, and the shooting is really good. Sweet as! You can find out more at http://www.redhandedshortfilm.com
22 Years - Fred Thomas, Jr.
There are some films that live and die on the back of their main character. 22 Years is exactly that kind of film, with the performance of Dawn Noel being the backbone. It is, in fact, an incredibly lucky thing that she is spectacular, and makes me happy she's a Facebook friend! She plays Avi, whose father attempts to come back into her life. He's not exactly father of the century material, a drunkard's more like it, but his call sends her into a tizzy. The performance of Dawn is exceptional, one of the best I've seen in ages, but more importantly, it so thoroughly gives the film it's color, life, and resonance. It's well-made, nicely shot and edited, but it all seems to serve as a stage, and one that is incredibly well trod upon by an exceptional performer!
