Maybe my fav short. Its depiction of depression, regret, and addiction has stayed with me a long time--sometimes in jest, sometimes in nightmares. On paper, it should not work. It's quite sentimental and uses Larkins' own films a lot; however, Landreth puts his own touch on the older films and his confrontation with Larkin about his alcoholism is an emotional assault from all sides. Very surreal. Very sad. I tear up.
