Not even with ScarJo everyone can be a winner

"These Vagabond Shoes" (which sounds like an old Chaplin silent short film) is an American 12--minute short film from 2009, so this one will have its 10th anniversary two years from now. There's probably two reasons why this film is not entirely forgotten: the first is that the writer and director is Scarlett Johansson, the second is that the lead character is played by Kevin Bacon. I like them both a lot, so I am surely disappointed by how weak this film turned out. And I also like b&w films a lot, which makes it more disappointing even. It is basically about a man traveling through New York to sit on a bench and eat a hot dog. The people he meets on his way are mildly interesting at best and I don't really feel as if they were somewhat representative for the city. So yeah, I wished this would have turned out considerably better, but the way it actually turned out it is nothing where I would say I am curious about future efforts by Johansson as writer and director. The artistic as well as effortlessly simplistic notes that the film is trying to achieve 8also with the title) are not in here at all I must say. Plus it is really difficult for me, if not impossible to give a film a thumbs-up that is under 7 minutes movie and 5 minutes credits. Watch something else instead.
