Inspiration: The secrets that linger like a residue after one dies. The long take sensibilities of the Dardennes, Bela Tarr and Sokurov.
Other Info: Ken tries to hide his best friend s secrets from his new widow. An irreverent romp through grief, loyalty and porn.

the single take is a bold choice, and carried off very successfully. It throws a huge responsibility onto the actors, who meet it really well, even if the narrative - hiding a guy's porn collection from his widow - seems weirdly at odds with the mood and emotional tone of the film. But it's ambitious and impressively done. {Jury Member}
Unique story that keeps you interested throughout.  
Wow! I've seen a lot of films done in one shot, but it's rare that I see one this effectively shot. It's brilliantly blocked out and planned, and even though it's a natural, one-shot approach, the camera moves and turns are well-motivated and serve the story perfectly.
