The full length version of The Anachronism, a short film by Matthew Gordon Long, has been released online. The only thing wrong with it is that it isn’t longer. Give yourself a treat this weekend, enjoy the steampunk, and, if you’re like me, reminisce about taking a textbook out into the forest to name things in Latin! I’ll just give you one warning: this is a filmmaker who, unlike many others, knows how to let a mystery rest undisturbed. Yes, the film leaves you curious as heck, but in the end, I think that’s a much better place to be than stuck with an ultimately disappointing/implausible overexplanation that drains the film of its atmosphere. So I’m torn. I’m love to see this expanded into a full-length feature film. . . and yet I think it’s perfect as it is. Let’s hope that either way, we see a lot more from Long.
