Sinistra is the type of small film I like to see. Its plot is simple. The main character is likeable. The effects, while not special, get the point across and allow the viewer's imagination to fill the void. And itís inventive and quite simply fun. This thing clocks in at a proficient 15 minutes and did something most shorts fail to do: leave you wanting more. The story wastes no time showing a down and out artist, Max, whoís struggling to create a piece of great work. With no gigs and no cash, he opens his last beer Ė the only item in the fridge Ė and the bottle cap becomes embedded in his hand, giving him special powers to draw something, anything, and it becomes true. Want a lottery check worth millions? Draw it. Need to restock the fridge? Draw it. Need that hot chick from across the alley to be at your door? You get the drift. Of course, with only 15 minutes, we donít have time to worry about how logical the gift is so we bite the premise and watch the artist go through an array of greed and lust until he takes it too far. Why? Because the gift has come with a price. Stealing a page from Evil Dead , his arm becomes infected and spreads. However, this guy isnít Ash. I donít think Max has the stones to lob off his own hand.
