I called it.
Curfew, 19 minutes long, which I saw at the Tribeca Film Festival this past year, is a masterpiece. Here is my review.
Curfew is nominated for an Academy Award this year in the Best Live Action Short category. Directed by Shawn Christensen (as well as written by, and starring), Curfew is a whimsical piece of condensed poetry and pain, a love letter to New York City and New York movies, entertaining, gorgeously shot, with a sucker-punch of an ending. I loved every second of it, and am so pleased to see it racking up awards on the festival circuit, culminating in an Oscar nom. For a short moment there, I was the only person who reviewed it.
Here is the interview I did with Christensen about his film.
