Controller

This Taiwanese short film by Writer and Director Saman Kesh is somewhat succinctly summed up as: "A girl who can control everything, perpetrates her own rescue by taking control of her boyfriend." It's an action-packed, cleverly-shot and cool looking little short film that owes more than a little to the tropes of classic anime. What else is going on? Beats me. Plus, I don't get the ending, unless Kesh meant the "everything" in the synopsis to be taken literally, which would not only place this film in a crazy anime-like world, but a fully automated sci-fi one too. Whatever. Weird ending or not, I really enjoyed all the stuff that led up to it.

Check it out.
