The Voorman Problem (2013): How do you sum up a 13 minute short film without spoiling anything? Um....got it! Dr. Williams goes to a prison and investigates Voorman, an inmate claiming to be God. (Insert Morgan Freeman joke here)
So this is going to be a short review, after all there isn't much to talk about here. Since this movie was nominated for Best Live Action Short, I figured I'd take a look at it. I wasn't going to write a review, but now that I've seen it, I have to tell everyone to do the same! First off, it's only 13 minutes long. This is both a blessing and a curse. There's only like 4 scenes, and each of them are great, but then the movie ends very suddenly. I have a feeling that a good short leaves you wanting more, but they set up a great idea for a movie and then....it ends. I was legitimately sad. No lie. I wanted more! The banter between Freeman and Hollander was outstanding, even though they only had two scenes together. That's about the only thing to comment on, as the other two scenes were just Freeman and an extra contemplating Voorman. But man! I WANT MORE. GIVE ME MORE. This movie was definitely deserving of its Oscar nomination. Congrats to Mark Gill and company on that achievement! But ya! It's $2 on the iTunes store. It's worth every penny. I promise!
My number: 4/5 I WANT IT ALL....or...more. Sorry....had a Freddie Mercury moment there....
