An escaped convict on his way to Texas strikes a deal with a young misfit.
As a short, Typhoon is a beautiful story all around. Professionally-produced with exceptional cinematography, it’s just gorgeous to watch from beginning to end. Jack Forcinito gives a superb performance against the mute character of Calvin Olson’s Pete. There is sentimentality between the two but never overplayed. It’s also a testament to how filmmakers can get a lot from very little. Locations are not overly complicated shot in the outdoors by a river, along a road, and off the beaten path.
Typhoon is a story of two strangers looking for hope and finding it in each other. It’s definitely worth 16 minutes of your time.
