Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.19.11] movie news short thriller



It seems that I've been hearing about Scooter Corkle's Chloe and Attie for years. And that's probably not far from the truth considering the short was completed in 2009 and played numerous festivals through the 2010 season. I missed it at VIFF last year but it was one that a few folks mentioned as a must see and lookie here… now I, and the rest of the world for that matter, can see the short film that had everyone talking.

Starring Jacqueline Robbins and Joyce Robbins as the titular Chloe and Attie, it's the story of a woman looking after her friend. But it's a short film, running just over 8 minutes, and there really isn't a whole lot to this story or many twists so you’re better off just seeing it for yourself and you can do so below.

Short film after the break.

definitely one of the strangest shorts I've seen in a while. I'd love to hear someone's theories as to, well, just why.

And mine is, that she Chole had to stop her, after what has happened ( or that Ipods do that to you when using them for long periods :))
Now the ending in my opinion has come either by both of them killing each other, or by Chloe dying due to the link between twins, when she drowns her.
Either way, in catatonic states mind can occupy itself with opening parts often closed.

Chloe seems to get satisfaction from wheeling Attie out to the window to watch her do her thing. If that's so, why do the whole assisted suicide thing? Seems counter to what we saw before. Was this just "one last binge" before the end?

I liked it, but something wasn't jiving for me in terms of motivation.
