Silently We Stand

The actor Timothy J. Cox got in touch with us recently and asked if we’d like to review some of the films he’s been working on lately, we were only too happy to oblige.

To Be Alone sees Timothy J. Cox (Solutions, Psychic Murder) as a man who suddenly finds himself alone.

We see him pad around his house, watching faith channels on TV in his pyjamas and heading outside like a man possessed to build something.

We know not how Cox came to be alone, only a mystery hand beneath a sheet provides any sort of clue that something may not be right, or is it all a tragedy?

Writer, director and editor Matthew Mahler (What Jack Built, Dark Romance (Short)) is a master with the camera.

We have some short, sharp shots of Cox from angles that allow him to express himself, as he says nothing throughout the short film.

Mahler also follows Cox on his journey, allowing us to do the same, allowing us to see him through all angles, ensuring we miss nothing.

To Be Alone is a bit of a head scratcher, but that makes it all the more intriguing. The production is good, the direction is impressive and Cox performs his silent role with enough expressiveness that we see what he’s going through, but not so much that it’s over the top.

Incidentally, if you wish to submit your own film for review, simply contact us here.
