Movie Reviews

A versatile selection of short films
Jason Mancini | West Chester, PA | 05/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderful imaginative collection of short films done brilliantly through careful acting and writing. Each story has hidden messages about the human condition and dark choices that we make. Entertaining with suprising hidden twists in each short film. Expect to be suprised and shocked while viewing."
Original independent film-making that's actually entertainin
Neil T. Weakley | Hollywood, CA | 02/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is independent film-making in it's purest form. A guy has a vision and decides to write, direct, and pay for it (mostly) by himself.
These are funny, unique short films starring people you may actually know from TV, HBO, major movies and stand-up comedy!
And for you sci-fi fans, you get to see Forry Ackerman and the inside of his house! Yay!
C'mon! It's got scary donuts, hilarious peanut posters, a crazy clown car, red t-shirts, and leprechaun poo! If all that doesn't say "entertainment", I don't know what does!

"Hitmen, Clowns, Leprechauns, Living Suits, Killer Doughnuts and Angry Street Cleaners can all be seen in Filmmaker Chris Mancini's MYOPIC VISIONS. With a unique vision of Science Fiction and Comedy, this compilation presents all of Chris' award winning short films in one place for the first time.

The films have played such prestigious festivals as Slamdance, HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts, London Sci Fi Film Festival, and many others.

The Sci Fi Channel also presented Chris the "The Future of Film" Filmmaker award and aired his award winning short film SKINS, which The Museum of Television and Radio archived as an "Important Short Film."

Numerous luminaries have helped out with this compilation including comedians and actors from HBO's Mr. Show, Everybody Loves Raymond, Babylon 5, The Brady Bunch Movies, and Emmy award winning composer Gary Stockdale provided numerous original scores.

RAINBOW'S END
Three small time crooks capture a Leprechaun and try to shake him down for his pot of gold. Starring Dean Cameron (Summer School, Men at Work) and Mark Povinelli (National Lampoon's The Trouble with Frank).

HITCLOWN
A Hitman and a Clown accidentally switch bags and find they like the other's job better. Starring Jay Johnston (HBO's Mr. Show, Anchorman, Moral Orel) and Jennifer Elise Cox (The Brady Bunch Movie, A Very Brady Sequel) Shot in black and white with no dialogue, Hitclown is a comedy noir that explores the thing inside all of us that runs opposite to our outward natures.

SKINS
One day John decides to be his true self and shed his skin, literally and metaphorically, just for one day, and sadly, no one recognizes him. Now, along with being rejected for the person he truly is, his "skin self" is out for revenge. Starring Paul F. Tompkins (VH-1's Best Week Ever, HBO's Mr. Show) and Jay Johnston (HBO's Mr. Show, Anchorman, Men in Black II) and featuring Andy Kindler (Everybody Loves Raymond)

Plus see early films like the Man Who Loved Doughnuts and MOPS. SIX films total.
