One Too Many Mornings: A Tale of Sordid Depravity and Honest Vulnerability

One Too Many Mornings: A Tale of Sordid Depravity and Honest Vulnerability

One Too Many Mornings is the acclaimed independent film directed by Michael Mohan, which made its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The film is an expertly constructed ode to being free and easy, sexually depraved, drunkly confused and darkly lonely, all at the same time. On the surface, One Too Many Mornings is the humorous tale of a longtime friendship between two young men, Fischer and Peter, whose relationship has become complicated by nights of drunken debauchery. Between Fischer’s drinking problem and Peter’s troubles with his long-term girlfriend Rudy, there is an abundance of irreverent humor, but also an honest and painful view of male vulnerability.

Beneath the more obvious sense of depraved comedy, there’s a solid and confident quality to this movie that’s rarely seen in the world of young independent filmmaking. One Too Many Mornings has a fluidity that allows its characters to slip in and out of different psychological states. Sometimes they’re clearly using each other, but at other times they seem to have bonded because each completes the other in some painfully damaged, yet also wonderful way. There is a sincerity that shines through the film, a familiarity with the trials of young people trying to find their way in the face of harsh reality, and with a realization that the sense of delusion provided by depraved debauchery must ultimately be relinquished.

Lost and Found: The Remarkable Story of a Friendship

Lost and Found: The Remarkable Story of a Friendship

Lost and Found is a deeply heartwarming CG animated short film directed by Philip Hunt at London’s Studio AKA. The film is an adaptation of the award winning story book by illustrator and childrens’ book artist Oliver Jeffers, which premiered on Christmas Eve 2008 on Channel 4 in the UK. Since that time, Lost and Found has won more than 40 international awards, including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film in 2009.

A magical tale of friendship and loneliness, Lost and Found tells the story of a little boy who finds a penguin on the doorstep of his house one morning. Although at first he is unsure about what to do, the boy becomes determined to help the penguin find his way back home, even if that means rowing a small boat all the way to the South Pole!

Andy and Zach: A Heartfelt Film about Friendship

Andy and Zach: A Heartfelt Film about Friendship

Andy and Zach is a deeply touching narrative short film directed by the young New York filmmaker Nick Paley, which was named an Official Selection for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. In the film, two young men are faced with a fairly clear understanding that the ending of their time together as roommates is something that needs to happen. When Zach decides to move out, his roommate Andy awkwardly begins trying to set up a new life without his best friend.

Although each in his own way tries to mask painful feelings about the impending loss of their close friendship, in the face of their sometimes mutually contentious stances a real tenderness shines through, especially as the suave, socially competent Zach begins to worry about Andy, his socially misfit roommate.  In dealing with Andy’s dual feelings of abandonment and annoyance at the infantilizing worrying of Zach, as well as with Zach’s recognition of his need to move out, while still caring for Andy, the film beautifully and subtly depicts the ending of a particularly empathic kind of relationship.
