Watch True Skin - Alternative Versions.
True Skin is another short film that seems to exist as a show case for
what could be done, rather than a standalone film that works on its own
terms. The film puts us into a future of physical and mental computer
enhancements which can be bought and replaced, leaving the "naturals"
out in the cold and suffering while those with the resources enhance
and strive for eternal life. In this world we find that Kay has gotten
such an enhancement by stealing it, only to find that although it is
very powerful, it is also classified. He now finds himself hunted
across the world and seeking a way out via shadowy contacts in Bangkok.
The setting of Bangkok is a good one as it gives the filmmakers a
"blank" canvas which is already full of character and life. Onto this
colors are enhanced and visual effects added to create a future of
artificially enhanced humans in an oppressive landscape inspired by
Bladerunner. To speak a little of this aspect, it is impressive how
much was done with comparatively little and the short film does look
really good for "just" being a short. Others here on IMDb have already
lavished praise on this short and I guess most of it is due to the
technical aspect, so I'll focus on the aspects they seem to have
ignored or forgiven.
Unfortunately this is almost everything else about the film. The focus
on visuals means that the only place left to tell the story is in the
narration so, again with the Bladerunner inspiration, we get a heavy
narration throughout. As an idea I don't mind it but the voice acting
is generic "tough guy private dick 101" and the dialogue more or less
the same. The biggest downside of this though is that the narration
pulls you away from the idea that just because the film looks good and
is a sci-fi then it is somehow innovative and unique, and actually
reminds you that the narration all the way down to the suggested plot
and ideas are also nothing new. It really made me boggle to see this
described as "new age visionary" as if this short had not just copied a
lot of its content from other sources.
It has does this and I cannot pretend to love it as much as the 10/10
crowd here, but it is still technically and visually very impressive
shame that the terrible narration, plot and general genericness of the
whole thing dragged it down to a level below where it deserved to be.
