Short Film Review: The Button
Oficial website: http://thebuttonfilm.com/
I had the privilege of previewing the latest Klejwa brothers brothers film the other evening, The Button. Now, when one usually thinks of a lego film the first thing to spring to mind is not a high quality 15 minute professional production, but that is exactly what Sam and Phillip Klejwa have accomplished , this film leaves other lego films in the dust.
The story is set in the near future and is an analogy of sorts. The film can be a bit confusing at times, but this is acceptable as it is a thinking film where you are trying to guess what is actually happening the hole way through.
I would say that this is easily up there with Isaac Botkin's lego masterpiece Men O’ War as one of the most impressive lego films I have seen to date. I have no idea when to expect the film to be made available to the genoral public, but I would keep an eye out for it in film festivals this year.
