Verdict on The Lone Wolf
The Lone Wolf is a short movie that utilizes the radio talk show host setting perfectly. Putting a celebrity figure in both lights, the hero to his callers and the villain to another story. It feels like we are watching a trial without a judge or jury. As we are never sure what is true in the discussion that goes on.
The intensity is there throughout, as we are left wondering what the caller will do next. It keeps us wanting to listen to more of their discussion and being left wanting even more.
Final Thoughts – The Lone Wolf is an intense short movie that makes you want more.
