X costars Vincent Riverside (l.) and Eden Brolin (r.) flanking director-writer Josh Brolin at this evening’s Fourth Annual HollyShorts Film Festival at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian theatre — Thursday, 8.7.08, 8:05 pm. Here’s my reaction to Brolin’s short afte seeing it last February at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. Also shown was Martin Keegan‘s Verboten, a twisted relationship drama about a weirdo son with glazed eyes, a malevolent dad (played by Keegan) and the latter’s attractive German-speaking girlfriend.
