It only takes four minutes and forty-two seconds to reach Ecstasy

He would do anything to be touched by his former lover once more… ANYTHING.

Writer-director-star Kyle Reaume’s four minute and forty-two second short film Ecstasy is an exploration of the coalescence of love and violence. Playing out in slow motion, with no discernible dialog, the film introduces us to an attractive young man (Justin Miller) sitting alone at the bar. Across from him, he spots an old flame (Harrison Reynolds). Though we know pretty much nothing about their relationship, it’s safe to assume that things didn’t end well.

Reaume juxtaposes one of the couple’s happiest moments with the immensely queasy confrontation that is about to unfold. Ecstasy packs a powerful punch (quite literally) into a very short run time.

You can watch Ecstasy now on Dekkoo and make sure to check out Kyle Reaume’s other available short film, What About Shelley, while you’re at it!
