  1. What did it win the prize for, direction? Ok, it was directed pretty well but not enough to keep my interest (and skip ahead). It was also pretty hokey. Is that how the world sees 20-somethings?

  2. Sorry for the "an" instead of "a" in the first sentence and the "was" that should not even have been included in the second. I guess I was typing too fast or my maybe my grammar is slipping. Please overlook my mistakes.

  3. Well I don't know what happened to my first comment but I was questioning why this short won this prestigious award from sundance. Oh, and it had a few grammatically errors I saw so I felt like I needed to apologize for those with the statement above.

  4. Looked like an acting exercise to me.

  5. Updated Satre's No Exit or something?

  6. I am now convinced that I can grab 10 non-interesting individuals, throw them into a closed space and film whatever the hell happens and call it a film to win at Sundance.

  7. I don't get it.

  8. I liked it, but I don't think it was profound enough to be a Sundance prize-winner.

  9. I thought it was fairly good (7/10) and certainly worth the few minutes it takes to watch it. Although there is a plot, it's more a character study than plot-driven, but some folks can't handle that.

  10. These people are trapped in the kebab shop. Forever trapped in the kebab shop.

  11. Lame. Thought it was gonna be something. Not much more to it than a Saturday Night Live skit with British accents and no punch line.

    Don't bother.

  12. It's undercooked. Send it back.

  13. Well I got a lot more out of this short film than everyone else. Everyone was in the place was comfortable in their own skin until the rough guys came arrived. The punch line is to stand up for yourself, bullies can be taken down a notch. That's what the blonde showed the young guy.

  14. Was that it Christopher? I missed it.

  15. Wow, Niki Minaj is really letting herself go.

  16. Well I'm hungry now. Nothing like a kebab after a night of drinking.

  17. Not all that interesting. However, they did accurately portray the mincing queen as annoying, disrespectful, and, for the most part, cowardly. So they get one star for accuracy.

  18. Uninteresting.

  19. Reminded me of an MSNBC Caught on Camera episode.

  20. I'm not sure it's award-worthy, but I found it to be an interesting little study on the same person can go from be both harassed and the harasser in a flash.

  22. Ho-hum. Pet the cat.

  23. I enjoyed it. It was a nice "slice of life".

  25. Probably should've named this "Bigoted Stereotypes Are True After All" and called it a day.
