a collection of not so interesting films
19 July 2001 | by cloud1978See all my reviews

This is a collection of short films, none of which are very interesting except maybe the final one. Very boring, it drags and it drags... not even worth a rental. I've seen better short films out there. Don't waste your money on this one.
