The Bloody Olive.

As I was going through my old Youtube favourites, I found this short film from 1996 by Vincent Bal called The Bloody Olive. This has to be up there for greatest short films of all time. A genius concept, perfectly executed, and great acting to boot. Give it a chance, if you watch this and you hate it you are even more stupid than you look.

PS – The only movie with more twists than this is the John Travolta classic, Basic. I dare you to go rent that film. The ending is “incredible”.

PPS – If anyone actually goes and rents Basic and can prove it somehow (with a photo of themselves watching it perhaps) I will give them a t-shirt.

    I found this by mistake on the blog, but what a perfect mistake! The film is really great. For the record, the scenario is coming from of a small comics called ‘Imbroglio’ written by Lewis Trondheim and published by L’ASSOCIATION in France…
