Not a huge fan of magic, but this caught my eye after 3 minutes of watching. Adam Patel is a ridiculous man that i do hope to meet in the future. At one point in the short film he puts a needle in his arm declaring he feels no pain. The reason for his painkilling ability? A dark, and introduced but not explained, childhood of being bullied. The needle is meant to symbolize an element of his teenage years (or maybe pain in general?). The woman sitting across from him is so confused by what she has seen that she can hardly get him something to wipe his arm. She even looks at the arm to see if there are holes from the needle he stuck entirely through, maybe thinking this was part of a mind shattering trick. But no, the man who claims to know magic has simply stuck a needle in his arm. This movie is almost as ridiculous as Adam Patel, but not quite. Check out the trailer for Superman: Requiem.
Gave it 3 stars because, honestly, it's pretty funny this guy made a movie. Even if it sucked, good for this guy fooling himself and others.
