Because of their aesthetics and the accompanying self-indulgence, POV movies made on iPhones don’t hold my attention very well. However, this short movie is an exception. It’s in first person, but it’s wry and self-deprecatory rather than self-pitying. But it’s the deft editing — often quick cuts packed with emotional information rather than empty decorative elements — and the actors’ obvious commitment to the project that keeps it moving.
