Audience Reviews for Shok

  • May 16, 2016
    The Oscar-nominated live action short that I thought would win because out of the three other "important" and topical films, "Shok (Friend)" seems the least agenda-driven while still telling a very political story. Most of the films deal with culture shock or "big issues": an Afghan-American woman joins the military as an interpreter, but then has to deliver a baby on her first day because of Islam's tradition of modesty; an Israeli couple accidentally crash into a West Bank convent, and the nuns begrudgingly break Sabbath to help them; a German film about a quietly unhinging father who takes his daughter out for a fun day...at a photo booth and then a passport bureau in an attempt to flee the country with her to avoid further custody battles. All the short films are good, but "Shok," the longest one at twenty minutes, has enough time to fully develop a bitter, violent, and traumatic tale about the Kosovo War through the eyes of two adolescent boys, who also give the most disarmingly strong performances.
