La Migala - Short Film Review

La Migala a masterful short, takes on a revolution through one man's self inflected torture as he lets a venumous spider roam in his small shuffled apartment. The camera technique reveal layers of complexity inside this tiny apartment. Revelations show insights of a man destined to keep himself on his toes and ridled with fear, while giving his life meaning and purpose. He longs for life and love as we are shown his interest to a particular woman we never meet. It is through her narrative that we experience his dissent and crescendo, leading us to face his fears. The spider teases us while it manifests our character's greatest fears and desires. Director Jaime Dezcallar's La Migala shows prowess and restraint, as he takes on a psychological journey, reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's use of the camera.
