Kicking Sand in Your Face
United States | 2008 | 8:42 | Live Action
This is a dark black comedy loosely based on the Charles Atlas ads found in the backs of old comic books. It's about obsession and self-deception. Sometimes revenge isn't so sweet...
I wanted to make a noir-ish black comedy about how sometimes justice just does not always seem to come to those who deserve it. Believe it or not, without getting too much into politics, my inspiration came from watching President Bush get away with so much, and how he always seemed to just walk away completely unchecked. The way I saw things at the time that I made this, I believed that justice just did not always automatically come to those who deserve it. I'm a fan of noir-ish dark comedies like "Blood Simple", and even "No Country For Old Men". Films like that were my inspiration for, "Kicking Sand in Your Face". I hope you enjoy! :)
