"What I do know is that: I love more than a compass loves north." What in the funk is this? "Think Blue Valentine meets Jurassic Park." That's the opening pitch for this short film, but it's something else entirely unique and fun in its own way. The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger is a wacky, romantic adventure short from filmmaker Michael Lukk Litwak (@MLLitwak). It has a very hipster vibe to it, I must admit, but it's fun and the score is great (from the same guy who did the Beasts of the Southern Wild score). If you want to see a short film with dinosaurs, spaceships, romance and more, then fire this up.
What an ending. Synopsis from the official website: "Dinosaurs have invaded Earth but neither Tommy nor Stacey care anymore, now that they’ve met each other. They escape the war, but whether they dive to the bottom of the ocean or fly to Outer Space, conflict always seems to find a way into their lives." The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger is written, directed and edited by Michael Lukk Litwak, with original Music by Dan Romer (the same guy behind the soundtrack for Beasts of the Southern Wild).

Well that was the cheesiest, craziest metaphor for love, relationships and the human condition Ive ever seen. And I fucking loved it.

While it was thoroughly enjoyable, it definitely had a Wes Anderson hipster vibe, with a little Jean-Pierre Jeunet thrown in.
