A chilling mystery drama set to ‘The Blue Danube’.

Synopsis

A man goes for a late night drive.

Review

Cooper Hair’s chilling mystery drama takes viewers on a mesmerizing journey through the darkness of a late-night drive. With Joshua Hoole as the sole character, the absence of dialogue creates an intriguing narrative that slowly unveils the man’s mysterious pursuit and true intentions. Filmed predominantly in black and white, the visual aesthetic harkens back to a by-gone era of classic Hollywood cinema, adding an eerie quality to the film.

One of the standout elements of this short film is the choice of musical soundtrack. Johann Strauss II’s ‘The Blue Danube’ serves as an unexpected and captivating juxtaposition to the tone, further enhancing the mysterious and unsettling atmosphere. It’s a brilliant decision that elevates the overall viewing experience.

Hair’s decision to unravel more of the story post end credits is a stroke of genius. As the audience learns about the depths of criminality and the protagonist’s psyche, the film takes an unexpected turn, leaving viewers with a lingering sense of unease.

Joshua Hoole’s performance is nothing short of gripping. His portrayal keeps audiences engaged from start to finish, and his ability to convey without dialogue is commendable. This well-crafted piece of filmmaking deserves high praise. From the captivating narrative to the stunning visuals and impeccable soundtrack, Hair has created a short film that leaves a lasting impression. Highly recommended for those seeking a suspenseful and thought-provoking cinematic experience.
