About:
Douglas Buck’s Trilogy of America that he put together several years after making his infamous Cutting Moments.

This one here is taken from the US version and features two other Buck short-films as part of the trilogy. Cutting Moments here is uncut as far as the violence and gore, however, the Brit version has a longer ending.

The two other short films here might not be as shocking as Cutting Moments, but are a must-watch for anyone that digs Douglas Buck’s style of capturing simmering emptiness.

Stories on dysfunctional marriages / families with sexually dysfunctional husbands. As said in the EUM summary the direction shows the ’emptiness’ of life / lives. The minimalistic dialogue adds to the feeling of emptiness. Might not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ but I found it quite good. 3/5 power rangers

the soundtrack in the first one as she walked out of the bathroom is amazing.
The other parts are pretty bad, last one could have been better, pacing in the whole movie was horribly done. Penis

It’s watchable but so damn slow. Like director, you know you can say cut. We don’t need a 9 hour long shot of the kid walking into the house right?

@admin. Is it possible to remove some of the older posts say 2020 and backwards. I get very confused when people reply to something long-dead. If it was relevant to the film it would be fine but mainly its just abuse.

There is another trilogy film which I have seen recently called ” Morris County ” by Matthew Garrett which is in a similar vein as this one and although not as gory, the final story is so sad and depressing that I just had to mention it. You dont always need gore to be affected by something and this really got to me. Not to take away anything from ” Cutting Moments ” which is in a class of its own, however the other two stories were pretty average. Happy viewing, all.
