A short film full of scale and personality- is just a plain old fantastic joy to experience. Lachman’s direction, which finds a creative way to deliver each of her scenes, keeps the film from becoming a one note tragedy. I’m quite jealous of this project.
Pin-Up is a distinctly modern tale of tale of sensual awakening whose muse hearkens to another era. “captivating” and “mesmerizing.”
Pin-Up … is a well-oiled thriller …has the touch of a Brian De Palma film in particular with its red room sequences, and twisted ending… but also grasps a stronghold of importance in its character’s inner workings, …something I can’t recall being done all that well since “Laurel Canyon” by director Lisa Cholodenko.All in all, Pin-Up seems to tiptoe between its genre and styles, and ultimately serves up a lean meal which can be viewed and enjoyed more than once both for its performances, content and chutzpa…which is really something that can only be said of a few short films.
Captivating a totally-ready-for-prime-time comedy about the romantic misadventures of an Angelena cartoonist (the captivating Elizabeth Keener, sister of Catherine) in search of her dream girl (gorgeous ER paramedic Michelle C. Bonilla).
Peeling the lid on lesbian romancing, Getting To Know You, deftly directed by Liz Lachman and a deserving winner of the HBO Best Audience Short at the recent Miami Gay &; Lesbian Film Festival, is ariotous screwball comedy with oodles of wit, charm and panache.
The film is hilarious, the actors have spot on comedic timing, and the production values are outstanding. My only regret is that Ms. Liz Lachman did not make this one into a feature-length film. I hope our audience does not to have to wait too long to see her next film.
The casting for this film is probably the best I have ever seen in a gay/lesbian film…Regardless of sexual identity, everybody can relate to the situations and characters.
Blending animation and live-action, this hilarious short about a lonely cartoonist who’s unlucky at love was as big a hit with male viewers as it was with women. A sensational cast and hilarious dialogue puts this at the front of the pack. I really want Liz to do a feature now
