Audience Reviews for Election Night

  • Nov 13, 2009
    Thought provoking short about a man trying to get to the polls on time, while running a gamut of racist taxi drivers on the way. Will his liberal reaction conflict wth his desire to vote or will he make it there before it closes? No easy answers but a few questions to ponder along the way.

    Great short by Anders Thomas Jensen. It's the election night and Peter, a responsible man, forgets to vote. Now he has very little time to vote, he starts to run to make it while running away from all the racism around him. Darkly funny and ironic as all of Jensen's following feature films. The song used at the end credits put a smile on my face for a long time.

    This Academy Award winner for best short film, live action is hilarious. A man who has forgotten to vote on an election night tries to hurry and arrive on time in order to vote. However, the first cab he takes is extremely upsetting since the taxi driver makes really racist comments. He gets off and goes into another, facing the same trouble. Although the subject matter is controversial, I don't really think this short tried to insult anyone in any way. You thought D.W. Griffith was racist? Get a brain and stop following the universal opinion when you can't make one of your own! It may not have the best acting or plot, but it was pulled in the right way. Extremely recommended short. 68/100
