This 7-minute film blew me away. At first the stark tone and lighting drew me in. Then things started getting trippy in Room 8 and I couldn’t look away.
It’s a fantastic film with echoes of Escher, Borges, Christopher Nolan, and Richard Kelly. (You probably know M.C. Escher and Christopher Nolan, but Jorge Luis Borges was an Argentinian writer whose incredible stories often featured mirrors, mazes, and infinity. Richard Kelly is the director of Donnie Darko and The Box, two very trippy movies.)
Definitely hit full screen and pay attention for this one.
Incredible as it may be, I don’t think I’d want to watch it while tripping. That drawer would haunt me!
If you liked this, you’ll get a kick out of Christopher Nolan’s student film Doodlebug, which probably influenced this work. It’s only 3 minutes long.
