Short Stay

Directed by Ted Fendt
United States, 2016


Mike is 30 and not particularly skilled for anything. When offered a better job in a bigger city, Philadelphia, he decides to go. Aimless as always, Mike is the perfect anti-hero for this mumblecore journey shot in grainy 35 mm.

What are people saying?

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film Short Stay

    Las películas de Ted Fendt muestran a un hombre en un contexto incómodo, que todo el tiempo parece volverse en su contra. Extractos de unas vidas en baja fidelidad, pequeños gestos y acciones retratados en una impávida escala humana. Podríamos ver sus películas como los nobles tesoros de un pequeño hombre que excava en la inmensidad monocorde de la vida cotdiana y extrae de allí una idea del cine enteramente propia.

  • Lance L O T's rating of the film Short Stay

    It is a very poor film with no clear idea where it wants to go and where it should go. It is following the life of this guy and his supposed friends, but it is not enough, it looks like a bad seinfeld episode or an even more awkward office episode on the street. I have nothing good to say about it. Clearly I am a lesser public cos I did not get it one bit.
