As promised, a return to indie short films, and oh boy, do I got a doozie of one for ya this week. If ever there was a short that deserved to be a feature length film, this would be it.
While robot rebellion movies are common, it is exceedingly rare to see things from the robots point of view, much less to have them cast as the heroes. Yet, that is what Rise does, and does so beautifully.
Me having a novel out by the same name is just gravy for me, personally. The film is stunning to behold, and would deserve to be shared regardless.
