Thanks to IFC's Independent Eye I have now seen my favorite film of 2009. David O'Reilly's PLEASE SAY SOMETHING won the Golden Bear for short films at Berlin this year. It's about ten minutes long but packs a wallup of emotion, innovation, and experimentation into those ten minutes. My day has been made.
IFC has some more information on their site, along with excerpts from an interview with O'Reilly. Check it out.
