Feast Of The Foolish. I kept wondering what to expect. After glancing at some of the production stills, I was really curious. So, after what seemed like a million years it finally came up for review and I jumped right in.
This is one really cool short that's nice on the eyes and a pleasure all around. As we all know, I hate giving away story so I try and keep my ramblings as spoiler free as I can. But I will say this. Yes. You'll probably guess what's going on after the first few minutes. But not the specifics, which are nicely done. You won't jump out of your seat and yell: "Holy Crap I Never Saw That Coming" but there's enough originality here to make Feast Of The Foolish it's own man.... err, woman, since this short was brought to life by none other than Meg Pinsonneault.
On the technical side of things this film looks great! Even the lighting seems crafted well (A pain in the arse in the Indie Film World). From the dusty desert scenes to the small house that.... Oops. Probably should have put a spoiler alert.
Anyhow. My point is that FOTF looks and sounds great. No lost marks here. As a matter of fact, the visuals should appeal to a great range of people! The stylistic approach to the film, color and wardrobe compliment the story being told, not try and over power it. That's not saying there's not some pretty funky colors and clothing going on here, only that it all fits and it's on purpose! Love the guys hair! Top all this off with some good acting and great facial expressions and you've got a winner every time! FOTF is a great short film and a welcome addition to our review section!
Take 15 minutes and check out this short when you can. You'll be glad you did. In the meantime, why not check out their site? Links at the top.
I give Feast Of The Foolish a solid 4 / 5.
