My friend (she's an art major) told me about this movie a few months ago. She really liked it a lot, but she tends to lean towards weird, surreal, and experimental movies like this. I'm not normally interested; I typically like movies to have a plot and character development. For that reason, I held off on watching it for those few months.

I finally decided to watch this movie before bed. Since it was so short, I figured it would be perfect. And, to be honest, it was. This movie has no real plot or anything, it's just three 3-4 minute shorts. Each short is a ...

Introduction was bland and boring
