Sam Did It: Review

Sam Did It: Review

Sam Did It is a short film directed by British actor and writer Dominic Burgess, who also stars in the film.

Sam is a mortician, who is obviously so immune to the sight of a corpse lying on the morgue table, dancing around the morgue with headphones blaring pop music. He is completely taken aback, however, when he realises that the body that lies on the table now is that of one of his heroes, Alfred Molina (played by himself). After the initial excitement and eccentric ‘fan-girling’ subsides, reality sinks in and he is grief stricken.



The film descends into a sort of hilarious madness, with lots of depth packed into jus a short ten minutes. Burgess is hilarious as Sam, as we go on a journey through his darkly comic imagination. Sam Did It is brilliantly funny and absurd, and with just the right amount of darkness as to avoid it being gimmicky. The filming is beautiful, and the clinical setting of the morgue looking fantastic, especially against the brighter colours of Sam’s imaginings.

This is a hilarious look at the power of celebrity, and in some ways what it means to be a fan and to idolise someone, and what happens when we are faced with their mortality. Burgess is clearly one to watch!
