Also included in this collection are SMOKING (written by David Sedaris), ECCE PIRATE (filmed during the making of Cutthroat Island), TO KILL AN AMERICAN, I THINK I THOUGHT, and the award-winning JESUS WAS A COMMIE, co-directed by Terence Ziegler. Each short includes an all-new video introduction by Modine.
The Short Movies of Matthew Modine
Don't miss this! Not only will you be amazed at how much information can be packed in a small amount of time, but how beautifully, intelligently, and touchingly it can be done. Sometimes subtle, with conclusions about what is being said left to the viewer, sometimes surprisingly awakening the viewer's own deeply buried painful past experiences' you find new insights, feel different emotions each time you watch these short movies. And trust me, you will want to watch these gems again and again. Mr. Modine has much to say, and his films say it eloquently. Five Stars!
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire collection. I love how Modine's style is prevalent in each short. He has an interesting way of telling a story, and this collection is perfect for anyone who has an open mind and enjoys outside the box storytelling. I was always a fan of Modine, looking forward to his future work.
