Short Film: Guillotine Guys
So, I seem pretty wedded to my Netflix queue sometimes. But every now and then, someone will point me toward something great that’s floating out there in the wider world of film. Then I get to branch out a little. And, filmmaker, James Ricardo, did just that favor for me, alerting me to his new short film Guillotine Guys. You can watch the whole thing here, on Youtube. The film is short and sweet, and the plot doesn’t go where you think it will. Really, there’s no excuse not to watch this right away. Such a simple idea. Yet, I never seem to come up with any that are half as good, myself. This is black humor at it’s darkest—plenty of grit and violence. So, viewers beware! But there’s definitely humor here. Maybe I’m a sick person for finding the premise so funny, but I’m pretty sure this short was intended to be pretty goofy. I’d be pretty interested in hearing what other people think about this one, so definitely share your thoughts!
