'Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You' Review
An Entertaining yet Flawed Dramatic Short Film

Rating: ★★★

'Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You' follows an unhappy couple during a rough patch in their relationship.
A short film centred around this premise sounds like a good idea, and for the most part, it's executed fairly well.
Besides shot-reverse-shot being the main editing and framing technique and some poor audio, this 18-minute short is moderately well-made.
Nina Kova's performance is the best out of the two. She delivered her lines with emotion, unlike her male counterpart. Not to say Andrew Folson's acting was bad, it's just majority of the performance was the bare minimum. He delivered his lines fine but they were lacking.
The cinematography was quite good. It's reminiscent of an old 70 or 80s film.
The score was unique and was great at setting the tone.
With fine performances from the cast, beautiful cinematography, engaging writing, an excellent score but sadly not without its problems, 'Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You' is an entertaining short film.

If you would like to watch the film, it is on Vimeo for free.

A special thanks to Joseph Anthony Ruiz for recommending this short film to me and letting me use the poster he made for the film.
