Films I (did not) mention II


As I posted earlier, there are films I don’t review, at least not right away. So here’s more afterglow:

JONATHAN’S CHEST (USA 2014, 15 minutes) by director Christopher Radcliff had me guessing about what happened in the first scene (a lost thread) and how the last scene might be interpreted. I didn’t like that much guesswork at the time I saw the short at the ALPINALE. But now I just might have figured out some of the riddles. And that’s why I’m posting this now: This bl**y film had me thinking until now. The brilliant cinematography might be another reason.


BATHS (Polen/GB 2013, 4 minutes, animated) by director Tomek Ducki is wonderfully made … and tells a story which left me with that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Why I didn’t mention it earlier has explicitly to do only with my wet feet at the time it was shown.
