The Length of Your Rage
Comedy, Short Films, 07-Oct-2022
After an angry fight with his boyfriend, Thomas walks across Manhattan to cool off. Juan Pablo Rivera Garza & Charlie Sosnick direct “The Length of Your Rage,” a charmingly ragged comedy oozing with strange encounters between NYC oddballs. So says an Inuit tradition about anger, the length of one’s rage can be measured by how far they must walk until the feeling dissipates. It’s a far walk for Thomas after a phone call confirms his boyfriend was involved in a ‘grind line’ with other men wherein fingers were sucked. From the southernmost tip of Manhattan, he treks north to walk it off, but aggravating run-ins with electric skateboarders, pizza parlor employees, and M&M obsessed tourists prevent him from making much headway. The hijinks are framed with a lo-fi, anything goes spirit, exemplified by a musical finale filled with absurd flashbacks. -KA. Written by Charlie Sosnick.
