“In a toilet of a Manchester nightclub, two young men catch each other’s eye. As they reveal their feelings to one another, they find that their lives mirror each other in more ways than one. The only thing left to do is face the person staring back at them.”
Written & Directed by: Christopher R Brown
Starring: Jody Latham & Liam Boyle
Mirrors felt more like a hidden camera documentary than a short film, but not a particularly thrilling one at that. The dialogue and performances felt too realistic to work on film. It didn’t feel concise or edited for effect. Add onto that scenes cutting away to random people and overpowering background music and it all gets a little lost. I didn’t care about the characters. I didn’t care about their troubles. Meh.
Things I Liked: 1 - Honest insight into toilet behaviour Things I Didn't Like: 1 - Sound balance 2 - Lack of cohesion
