So VICE announced that they’re launching something called the “VICE Shorts” program, which I took to mean that they’ll be releasing a bunch of shorts produced under their label. The first one they released is “Bear” which is directed by Nash Edgerton, who also co-stars in the film along with Teresa Palmer, the lead female actor in Warm Bodies. It’s only ten minutes (eight if you don’t count the end credits) and it introduces us to a bizarre and twisted situation for the screen couple.
Check it out here.
I thought it was really well made for a script that’s probably got less than a page’s worth of dialogues. You kind of see where it’s going with two minutes left in the film, but it’s still thoroughly satisfying for those who love dark, twisted comedies that hit hard and fast. I should also mention here that you can definitely watch this at work, although I don’t advocate watching Youtube videos when you should be working (but I do).
