  1. msmichel's rating of the film When It Rains

    Low key for effective short from Burnett telling the tale of a musician trying to raise some funds on New Year's Day for a 'sister' who has been locked out of her apartment. The feel of the film is genuine, warm and in the end quite charming despite it's low production values and varying sound quality. A 'diy' effort after the bigger budget 'Glass Shield'.

  2. Brendan's rating of the film When It Rains

    The best filmic jazz song I've ever heard!

  3. doublelife91's rating of the film When It Rains

    Quite possibly the best short film ever made.

  4. SeventiesSinema's rating of the film When It Rains

    This has the casual feel of a tossed off John Handy solo; lazy like a summer's day even the cinematography feels warm. Variations on a theme: we follow a man who hits up everyone in his hood for some bread to pay a sister's rent. The seemingly artless, random progression of the plot belies a freeflowing structure that in the end - miraculously, as if touched by grace - coheres like a perfect jazz improvisation.

  5. itstheresomewhere's rating of the film When It Rains

    'Damn, I'm glad I didn't have a rap album in my hand.'
