Default Paul Is Dead (short film)

https://www.shortoftheweek.com/2018/10/12/paul-is-dead/

It's sort of a cross between a Billy Shears "origin story" for the Paul Is Dead myth (although without the car crash part, or really much to do with the actual myth), and an outtake from Withnail and I...

It doesn't really go anywhere much, but it's worth watching I think; only 13 minutes long. Some nice scenery and cinematography and character moments. It would actually make a decent pilot or first scene for a longer film; I wonder if the makers were hoping it might attract funding.

That was quite enjoyable. The Paul is Dead myth is the one that originally brought me to the snopes website and these boards back in '01.

This was not what I was expecting, but I was quite impressed with the production values and the acting itself. I am not a movie critic, but it was good enough for me to enjoy.

What is a movie critic, other than someone who enjoys movies and has strong enough opinions to write them down for other people to read?

I can't think I have strong enough opinions on movies

My brother took filmmaking at university and has a very critical eye towards those things. I think I'll zap him the link. He's a huge Beatles fan too.
