Aftermath and was impressed by his shot composition, camera placement, use of sound, his ability to tell a story without using any dialogue, and his first name, which calls to mind the delicious, high-cholesterol snack we all love so much. Those strengths are also present in Genesis, another short film, conveniently located on the same DVD as Aftermath. I'm a Cerda fan based on these two shorts, but I'm also a little wary. Genesis is a bit less impressive than Aftermath, with some overstylization, hints of pretense, and slightly less effective use of its lack of dialogue. What seemed daring in Aftermath is sometimes a diminished return in Genesis, although I wonder how I would have reacted if I'd seen the films in reverse order.
Wow, this may be my shortest review ever.
