Storyline

Banny and Mark are best friends, finishing college. Mark asks Banny for help moving his sister's things out of the apartment of her boyfriend, whom she says assaulted her. They help her move. Then Mark decides he wants more - retribution, payback. Banny resists: do they know what actually happened? Plus, the guy is rumored to have a gun. Mark is persistent and gathers other friends. They have options: their own assault of the boyfriend, perhaps a verbal confrontation, or maybe just a simple warning. What Banny and Mark do tests the definition of manhood, of self-respect, and of good sense. Meanwhile, do men own women? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

black machismo make moral choice on black machismo
17 September 2005 | by (United States, nyc, mical0078@yahoo.com) – See all my reviews

five deep breaths makes several comments/questions..one being..what is manhood..black or otherwise..the other is how far does one go to prove that they have it. a pretty decent question for the post john wayne yet still john waynesque hip-hop generation. I believe this short film shows much promise. Seith man has such control over the pacing and performance he's reminiscent of an antoine Fuque more than a Spike lee, you can feel the sense of action that would burst from the screen if he had a studio budget. nonetheless he effectively builds suspense and the lead actor, jamie hector, gives a performance that today's audiences as well as audiences from the silent film era, it's all about the eyes.
