Short Movie Review: Briefcase (2012)
Nate Golon scored big with his short ‘Briefcase’! Being less than six minutes long and packing suspense and drama into every last second of the film shows how talented this young man is. After watching this short you get the feeling of just having watched a full length feature film and wondering how the entire film could fit into such a short period. The plot and character development starts immediately and follows right through until the end, a difficult task to pull off when making a short film.
The short tells the story of a man named Carter (Golon) putting air in his tires at an empty service station one dark night. He spots a briefcase standing alone near his car. When he becomes curious and opens the briefcase, you suddenly realize he has found something that he should not have seen. His life immediately changes and an intense chase ensues, all the time without letting the viewer know what he has found.
Every second of this film will have you guessing “what’s in the case?!?”. The climatic end answers the biggest question , yet leaves you asking a new one. The Camera work is fantastic and helps build the suspense and drama! Overall this is another outstanding short film that just goes to show that you don’t need a multi-million dollar budget and ninety+ minutes to make a fully entertaining film.
