A man returns a letter meant for his neighbor but it’s not what it seems. In this satire by Johnny Frohman and Jeremy Levick, the topics of pandemic masking and modes of shaming are explored in prickly fashion. Wearing a bright yellow vest and double-masked, a man turns up at a woman’s door and strikes up a conversation. He claims he recognizes her from somewhere (“you’re not, like, a movie star or something?”), before admitting he saw her at the park not conforming to the highest standards of Covid protocols. Levick, often collaborating with Rajat Suresh, specializes in an edgy brand of critique (on the media, internet trends, the news, et al) that wanders uncomfortably where upstanding liberals are not supposed to go. “Good Samaritans” was filmed in one shot and builds to a cacophony of passive-aggressive confrontation. Levick can also be seen as an actor in Ryan McGlade’s “On Showbiz,” which we featured in 2019. Frohman was previously featured as the D.P. of Tynan DeLong’s “Azurine” and Anthony Oberbeck’s “Book.” -KA. Writer, Director, Editor: Johnny Frohman, Jeremy Levick.
