An Absolutely Wonderful 10 minutes
17 June 2012 | by conmack-399-747626See all my reviews

It is a great challenge to try to move your audience in 10 minutes and "The Ventriloquist" does exactly that. With Kevin Spacey as the lead actor it is hard to produce a piece of bad artwork, but without the wonderful writing and cinematography this short film would not be nearly as wonderful as it truly is. All the actors in "The Ventriloquist" do not have as big of role in the film as Spacey does, but they further more enhance the personality of Spacey's character. The costumes are wonderful and greatly enhance the look and feel of the short film. The dialog exchanged between Spacey and the puppet are comical but yet serious which gives this short film a great feel. So if you have a few minutes sit back and enjoy.
