A guy has a note containing a partial address of a woman he met at a bar. He tries to find her.

Delivered in a 4:3 aspect ratio (for all of the film I think) this was kind of odd, kind of creepy but kind of effective as well. The lack of dialogue did add to the mystery of it all but given the nature of his task it was rather repetitive. Good take on the genre though and certainly different from others seen this year.

Bit unsure what to say about the story here as I'm still trying to figure out what it was all about, what I will say tho is I loved the aspect ratio, the grading and the framing of your actor, you guys have great style.

I really liked the aesthetic that this team consistently delivers. Worth noting the couple of 16:9 frames at the very beginning which I assume were just a small technical mistake.

I liked the story a lot, although I feel we didn’t quite get the full resolution. He found the girl, but what did she think about that? Did she find it creepy, romantic? Just an extra reverse shot of her own smile at the door may have been enough to lift the ending up a bit.

Glad to see pizzafilm improving year by year.

Pretty simple story- probably too simple. So simple I'm not sure what else there is to say. I'd encourage this team to go for something a bit more exciting and complex in the next year.

I did actually like the set-up, I think it would have just been better had it gone to higher places.

As for your title, "Address" works. It's fine.
