A Look At HOLLYSHORTS
Do You Believe in the Devil, directed by Alex Grybauskas, is a black comedy of manners about death and longing. The premise of the film is completely twisted, and asks hilariously absurd questions about the morality of killing.
Metamorphosis, directed by Dave Yohe and based on the Kafka story, features amazing special effects and very strong acting.
The drama section was overall very weak. It could have just as easily been called the melodrama section, and was full of dramatic clichés such as a woman talking to her therapist, 9/11, a woman confronting another woman in public who is having an affaire with her husband, an estranged brother serving as a foil for his more successful brother in a sports movie, a sexual taboo as the crux of dramatic conflict, and much, much more.
Vanishing Act, directed by Joshua Courtade, is a comedy done in the style of a silent film about a magician who performs a vanishing act. It features a lot of cool in-camera effects and a funny, slightly twisted plot.
