Summer Night: Short Film Review

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Summer Night: Short Film Review

Boasting the tagline, friendship, ‘comedy’ and basketball Summer Night is a short film about average college kids doing average things.

There’s a semblance of a story line with a supposed interview in the offing by an unlikable and in my opinion, unfunny, comedian as well as a lost friend; but this short is largely just guys hanging out. It could in many ways be seen as an interesting look into modern American friendship and the bond between them, but unfortunately it was ruined by bland and uninteresting characters. Coming in at only 36 minutes long, though I remained forever hopeful of a twist or some action, nothing happened and the film remained slow throughout.

I commend the director Kent Juliff for his vivid portrayal of normal people and normal life and I don’t think you’ll see better camera work anywhere. The directorship and cinematography were truly mesmerising and some of the shots were incredible but I’d just wished there was some content to go along with it.

Overall, this is a beautifully sweet piece and I’m certain it brought the team who made it immense joy and pride and I can see why. Unfortunately, as an outsider I found it a little uninteresting. Others may disagree.
