Next Floor

Next Floor is one of the best shorts I've seen as of late, excellently produced with some incredibly biting social commentary mixed in for the blend. It took me a few viewings to quite fully understand it, but eventually it came to me all at once - It's a striking look at human hubris and the cyclical nature of greed. With every 'crash' that results from their over indulgence, nothing is learned while their servants, obviously not as privileged stare ahead, unnervingly clear eyed to the madness unfolding before them. At which point will the bottom fall out indefinitely? Thoughts to ponder.

During an opulent and luxurious banquet, eleven guests, served unrestrained by valets and servants attentive, engaged in a ritualistic gastronomic carnage paces. In this absurd and grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events undermines the endless symphony of abundance.
