2021 NoBudge Films of the Year • Comedy, Short Films, 07-May-2021
High-powered executive meets high-rise window-washer for an erotic rendezvous on opposite sides of her skyscraper window. “Squeegee,” directed by Morgan Krantz, is a sexy comedy that explores an unlikely connection nine stories up. Lori blows off her work responsibilities to prepare for a run-in with her building’s window-washer, a man she doesn’t know but seems to have made eyes at before. His arrival to her window begins a dance of flirtatious glances and provocative gestures while he dangles high above the city. Krantz nails a tricky tonal balance on the edge of absurd and sensual, and gets fully committed performances from real-life window-washer, Blair McKenzie, and Amy Rutherford. -KA.
