Death to the Tinman (2007)

This 12 minute short is apparently based on the L Frank Baum Oz novel The Tinwoodman of Oz, but 'the names have been changed to protect the innocent.' Intriguing. Of course not having read the thing, I have no clue how this resembles it in the slightest but that's probably not the point.

What we have here is a bizarre story of a volunteer firefighter who puts everyone else to shame and who suffers both their bizarre vengeance and an even more bizarre miracle. I'd describe the process but it would spoil the film entirely and I don't want to do that. I was rivetted if that isn't a horrendous pun. This is certainly something to experience, but I'd be lying if I said I had a clue what it really meant.
