The Impala

An ode to the 1967 Chevrolet Impala.
2/5

Review

‘The Impala’ is an experimental short film directed by Hugh Genet that tells a story of two brothers on an unknown mission. The film is based around the iconic 1967 Chevrolet Impala automobile and the hunt of the supernatural that Sam (Hugh Genet) and Dean (Ben Genet) are pursuing.

The cinematography was fairly well done, with the classic car taking centre stage, and the inside of the vehicle being the primary focus. The film’s sound and post-production were expertly handled, adding to the overall experience. However, the storyline was lacking and left us craving for more depth. The film’s focus was primarily on the automobile, which is understandable, but more attention could have been given to the occult mission undertaken by the brothers. As a result, the audience was left with more questions than answers.

Despite its shortcomings, ‘The Impala’ is a tribute to a cherished classic car. It’s a relatable film, and anyone who appreciates the beauty of a vintage car will enjoy it. Overall, it’s an experimental short film that has its moments and acts as a loving ode to a timeless automobile.
