Consent, Sex Contract at Atom Films

"Consent" a short film on Atom Film's top ten list for 2005, takes a satiric look at what might happen if marriage prenupital contracts were extended to sexual relationships.

The reactions of the actors to their lawyers suggestions are hilarious, but the whole thing is take-this-to-extremes funny yet meaningful in more ways than one. I particularly liked Rachel Vacca's nonverbal reactions to the staid lawyerly suggestions regarding who would do what to whom and for how long.

All of the Atom films top ten this year show impressive technical and story-telling expertise. Even streamed onto a computer screen they have movie impact.

Impressive work. Here's the credits for "Consent."
