Review: Chris Esper's "Steak Knives"
Took some time out to watch Chris Esper's latest short film called Steak Knives...
The comedy, penned by John King Fiore, follows John (David Afflick) whose life is threatened by his wife Katrine (Audrey Noone) when he gives her steak knives as a birthday gift.
I am afraid this one was just a bit off--While the premise is a good and had lots of potential-I was distracted by some dubbing issues here. The performances were solid. Esper is a very talented filmmaker who deserves attention...and is in fact getting some spending a few months in LA at Odd Lot Entertainment--his trip wraps this week.
Have a look at "Steak Knives" anyway--issues aside you gotta admire any film that is dedicated to history's notorious Lizzie Borden.
