Next Floor (2008)

Denis Villeneuve's wicked little confection is full of meaning and laughs as a large group of gourmands gorge themselves on all sorts of fancy food- eating until they literally crash through the floor only to keep on eating... The film is virtually wordless with the only word spoken being the title meaning that all of the waiters have to move down one floor.

Its a twisted but accurate look at how the we over indulge and keep going despite the fact that we know things are going horribly wrong.

A beautiful to look at film, I can't imagine what they spent on this short, but I'm glad I they did since it has great impact and really makes you think.

A big thank you to Peter for putting this on my radar.
