"The Cobblestone Corridor" (2015)
Erik Bloomquist has managed to create a delightful tribute to noir with “The Cobblestone Corridor.” In a concise 25 minutes he tells a complete, coherent mystery in the tradition and style of the genre, with a knowing wink that comes off as respectfully funny and not sarcastic or satirical. In fact, my only complaint was that I barely had time to get into the world of this private, elite high school and the story was over. I would gladly return for a meatier, lengthier exploration if he chose to make one. His eye for mese-en-scene and his playful dialogue are great. It looks, however, like I will get to explore another story in the horror genre first, if imdb has their information right.
When this film becomes available it is worth your time.
