Mouse-X Short Film

Who are you, if you're not the only you? This peculiar little short film is worth watching for the interesting twists and turns found within. Titled Mouse-X (which may hint at more of the plot than expected), written & directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Justin Tagg (@mouseXshortfilm), this "sci-fi mind trip" follows a man who wakes up in a room and has to figure out where he is and what's going on. He's trapped inside of one giant experiment involving a thousand clones of himself, so who is he if he's not the only one? It runs a bit long, but otherwise it's a well-made short that proves even old ideas can be rehashed and still be unique.

Synopsis from the official website: Mouse-X is a mystery/sci-fi story about Anderson, a man who wakes in a building with no idea where he is or how he got there, before slowly discovering that in each of the rooms around him are a thousand clones of himself, all of whom woke into the same mysterious scenario. To escape he needs to outwit his 'selves' whilst overcoming the realisation that he is not the only Anderson… Mouse-X is both written & directed by Justin Tagg, starring Julian Nicholson as "Anderson", with music composed by Verbal Vigilante. For more info on the short, check out their Facebook or official site. Cool?

    You know what "may hint at more of the plot than expected" more than the title? You saying that the title "may hint at more of the plot than expected".

    Cool little film. I like how he takes a very simple set - one room and one corridor - and cuts it so that we truly get the feeling that the protagonist is trapped in this endless maze. The looping narrative reminded me a lot of the film "Triangle". If you haven't seen that one, I highly recommend it. Total mind-fuk
