SXSW Midnight Shorts

February 21, 2009


MIDNIGHT SHORTS are just one of the many great late night options but unfortunately conflicts with my schedule so I will be missing them this year.

Big Pussy is by director Todd Strauss-Schulson who also had the short mano-a-mano in the 2008 SXSW. You can watch it here.

The synopsis alone is hysterically awkward: A nice-guy struggles to find the confidence to tell the girl he loves that her vagina has… an odor.

The great news is that the film is excellent, well-shot, good editing, and the lead delivers his lines in an uncomfortable and delightful manner. If this is any indication of the other shorts, I may just have to rearrange my schedule.

As for the rest, the one line synopses are all fairly intriguing. If you find the shorts online, please let me know!
