Moth (2009)

Director: Hilton Carter

Writers: Hilton Carter, Evan Guidera

Composer: Andrea Choe

Starring: Heaven Murphy, Susan Merenes, Brandon Lewis, Devon Woods

More info: IMDb

Plot: Sophie, a beautiful drug abusing young actress, flies into Los Angeles from New York, for a job. While staying at the home of some out of town family friends, Sophie does some coke and pills and finds that her problems are only getting worse.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.  Twice was fine.

Here's a nice little thirteen and a half minute short that centers on one character.  It's impressive, technically, looking like it's from a bigger budget feature.  The score is nice, especially during the underwater sequence at the end.  Murphy does a fine job carrying the film and the final underwater sequence was beautifully shot.  I watched it twice back to back to soak it in a bit more.  Nice little picture.  For most of the people involved in it have very few credits beyond this. That's a shame.
