He’s My New Best Friend

A while ago I wondered whether the Future of Films With Big Ideas Was Still Small? Now I wonder whether the same is true of those that are small.  I’ve just watched Blinky.  It’s an evil robot story (which has been  done and done and done).   The writer-director (Ruairi Robinson) clearly knew that his idea wouldn’t sustain a full length feature and kept it small and intimate.  It works.  The film is just long enough to set up the characters and  draw the world we’re in then deliver the story.  Somebody should give this guy a proper film to make.
