Sure, theses short films are almost ten years old, but I'd almost completely forgotten about them until I started this short film search. The talent involved in making what was mostly promotional pieces for BMW cars in undeniable. They must have worked, because according to Wikipedia, BMW sales went up 12% from the previous year. Here is a list of the films in order.
1. Ambush, directed by John Frankenheimer (Ronin, The Manchurian Candidate)
2. Chosen, directed by Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)
3. The Follow, directed by Wong Kar-Wai (Chungking Express, 2046)
4. Star, directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch)
5. Powder Keg, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams, Babel)
1. Beat the Devil, directed by Tony Scott (True Romance, Man on Fire)
2. Hostage, directed by John Woo (Hard Boiled, The Killer)
3. Ticker, directed by Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking Aces)
If you've never seen any of them, you need to. They were once released on DVD, although I never got one, but with most everything, they can be viewed on YouTube. Here is the first episode, written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Seven) and starring, as he did in all of them, Clive Owen.
I'm only adding this because I've been asked a few times, but yeah, I always accept review/preview copies. Who turns down free stuff? Email me at email@example.com for my mailing address. And thanks.
