Curious Things is a curious little short. Drawing together multiple tales of falling in love with a straight guy and/or a straight guy reciprocating to some extent, it relies on voice over to add meaning to the visual dramatisation. It adds weight to the truth behind the story. There are elements within which we all can probably relate to; mainly the confusion and feeling of being used. It may not be ground breaking but it’s reassuring to know that there are head f*cks all around the world and that we’re rarely alone in our experiences.
Things I Liked: 1 - The single use of dialogue at a turning point 2 - The style mirroring the truth Things I Didn't Like: 1 - The feeling of having seen it before
