Wowzers.

This short film is definitely not for the squeamish, but it's seriously wicked cool.

MANIFEST DESTINY from Darrell and Doug Waters on Vimeo.



From the creators:
Every time I find myself the recipient of one of these late night phone calls, tramping through some back alley behind another dark abandoned warehouse . . . Stuttering another secret password. . . Entering another hastily constructed operating room. . . Scalpel in hand, performing another indescribable procedure . . . I see another pair of eyes . . . By now in the hundreds . . . Staring . . . Whenever I try to sleep . . . Another member of an unenviable audience. . . Asking a painfully simple question for which I have no answer . . . Why . . .
Cranston says I need to “detach”. I suppose he’s right. I can no longer bear their judgment. I leave them here. . . On the table . . . As I scribble my signature on the confidentiality agreement, I leave them to their fate . . . I say goodbye . . .

I watched it yesterday, late at night. Gave me squirmy dreams, it was that good. Even cooler that they filmed it in their garage.

Plus hyper low budget. Hollywood could take some lessons.

I'm squeamish - I will not watch.

Tragic, but fair enough.
