Watch: Siavash Farahani's Pulp Western Short Film 'Domino Falling'
"Leo's got an army waiting for you!" "He's gunna need it. Today's new short film is a pulp western titled Domino Falling, that plays as a primer to a feature-length story focusing on the character of restless hit man in Mexico, played by Christopher Backus. The short is written and directed by Siavash Farahani and features some nice work all around, it's a good watch. It reminds me a bit of Kill Bill, in a way, and is quoted as having references to Peckinpah and Leone. I will say, by the end of this I do admit I really did want to see more. As something fun to watch for only 14 minutes, it's a worthy short to catch. Watch below.
