Sundance Review: Choices

Score:B

Director:Rashaad Ernesto Green

Cast:Reinaldo Marcus Green, Kaylin Bensinger

Running Time:4.00

Rated:NR

Have you ever wondered what a person is thinking while making love to their partner? Is it their day? Their work? Or even the one in which they are sharing their passion with? If this sounds like you, then Rashaad Ernesto Green's Choices is a must watch in every retrospect.

Carrying a running time of just over four minutes, Choices takes you inside the male psyche, revealing a young man's inner thoughts while he makes love to his girlfriend. Though the same mentality cannot be applied to all persons, the unique premise and careful approach help to make the film a solid, attention deserving short.

Seen as the sophomore project from director Rashaad Ernesto Green, the film captures your interest, provoking you to look on as a man spills his heart about commitment, family and the importance of knowing love. The audience's journey is one that is rarely taken, giving them four minutes of awkward, yet intriguing dialogue, played in the background of one emotional encounter.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
