I take a look at how the fashionista get even in my Short of the Week review of Kris Moyes’ City Limits.
So bad/ridiculous/over the top it’s good is a phrase you’ll often hear thrown around to describe features, but it’s not a term I can recall applying to shorts. Perhaps there’s something in the brevity of a short film that if it initially strikes you as ‘off’ it simply doesn’t have the running time required to pull you through the barrier of negative first impressions to the land of appreciation. Well, I feel that music promo director Kris Moyes got me past any initial reservations to a place of acceptance and enjoyment, with his knowing send up of the fashion world, City Limits.
Have a read and watch.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
