Perfect – New Short by Jeremiah Kipp
Once again it’s time to write about a short film directed by Jeremiah Kipp. I don’t know how many I have written about by now but it’s been a few over the years. They all have in common that they are very good. They may not be Perfect (pardon the pun) but they all hold a very very high standard. Perfect is no exception to this rule. The acting is really good even it there are very few actors in it. But considering that it’s a short film, about ten minutes, there’s really no room for lots of actors or complex storylines.
Speaking of a storyline. Perfect is most certainly a love story. I can also find some Frankenstein in there. It might be me over analyzing things but since the main character is obsessed by getting the perfect man, and she tries to stitch one together. Maybe it’s a metaphorical comment on that none of us a really perfect? We might have certain parts that are good or great or even perfect, but our whole being is not. Or rather, we all have flaws.
But regardless of that. Perfect never stops to be a suspensive and beautiful thriller. Even though I can put two and two together and figure out what’s going to happen, I’m still excited to see what’s going to happen next.
