Review

Cole Paul’s short film embarks on a journey that seamlessly blends the familiar tropes of coming-of-age drama with the enigmatic allure of science fiction. ‘A Lose Sense’ introduces us to Gavin, portrayed with a heartfelt quality by Jack Austin, who finds himself overshadowed by his older siblings. When a mysterious light beckons from beyond the window, Gavin’s mundane existence transforms into a secret adventure.

Jack Austin shines in his portrayal of Gavin, capturing the essence of childhood yearning and curiosity. His dynamic chemistry with co-stars Owen Myre and Lily Ewald lends credence to the intricate sibling dynamics at play. Director Cole Paul skillfully navigates the narrative, balancing moments of familial discord with bursts of supernatural intrigue.

Juliet “Satya” Sullivan’s picturesque cinematography heightens the film, offering viewers a visual feast of well-framed wide shots and immersive long takes. The deliberate disguise of adults within the narrative serves as a clever device, inviting audiences to perceive the world through the lens of childhood innocence.

Moreover, the seamless integration of sound, editing, and music contributes to the film’s cinematic quality, enveloping viewers in its captivating narrative. While the special effects may not reach cinematic heights, they nonetheless add an alluring layer to Gavin’s extraordinary journey.
