Brought to us by 8mm Productions director Mathew Mahler whose previously filmed shorts are “What Jack Built” (2015), “Vault” (2014), and “Dark Romance” (2013).

The film begins as a man named William (Cox) sits alone in his home. My guess is that something’s happened that he is alone… the phone rings as a sheriff calls while it appears he somewhat sits around the house listening to self help and religious infomercials…

I don’t want to tell it all but as I’ve seen Timothy Cox before in the short film “Here Lies Joe” it appears we see William go through a period of what I would call human withdrawal… as a man going through the motions we see him almost take a biblical meaning of the dragging of the cross to Gethsemene to another level…

Im actually neutral on this film I neither disliked the film nor did the film have any real affect on me but I do wonder exactly what happened to Williams significant other… I do however believe we see a perfect display of Cox’s ability to portray an aloneness that sometimes we all feel a human emotion.

It was entertaining I guess I’ll leave the viewers to the choice of enjoying the film…

Starring Timothy J. Cox as William, Maggie Kurth, John Mahler.
