Blowing your Brains out (23)
Even though this short film does give the ending away a little bit with the title, it is still compelling watching, the strain on the finger actually pulling the trigger, has to be seen to be believed.
A little more background would have been nice, rather than the red they used, but once the gun is actually discharged the background does fill in a little more. With such a very small cast, I would very much like to know if the lead actor is actually going on to do any more films at all.

The Cat that Yawned (7)
Probably best viewed as a film for the kids, this story has everything. From suspense and drama, to a open outlook on life, sort of a coming of age film, as when the cat yawns, it gets older.
The life in its household, may be seen as boring, but the frantic eating scenes, the long restfull sleeping scenes, and the exciting, mouse chase ending, liven this film up no end.

The Car that Rusted (95)
I thought this was going to be a rip off of Andy Warholes 'feet', or the epic B&Q film 'Paint drying a different colour', but how wrong I was.
This film is seen from the third person viewpoint of the car itself, showing its growth in the car factory, following its tentative, first drives along the test track and its drives out in the real world.
The story then progresses on, to the things it had seen, and places it had been, all lovingly described in the cars own words.
This covers the first ten minutes of the film, which then goes on to a three hour conclusion watching the rust form on the car as it sits alone in the outdoor elements.
Who would have thought, that what is normally seen as a 'crashable item' in most films, could provide such a poignant and colourful film.
