Simple Mind is a simple, short tale of a man who isn’t entirely what he seems. We follow our main character as he talks with his therapist about his life, his obsession with a woman and how his obsession leads to her murder. Our guy has quite the anything but mundane lifestyle! Or does he….?
Timothy J. Cox is PERFECT as the psycho killer here – I don’t think I’ve seen crazy eyes that good since Jonathan Rhys Meyers. *shivers* I love everything Cox has down here with his character. I went from intrigued to repulsed to piteous all in the span of about seven minutes. And the film, thought it features other characters, is really all about him so kudos for not once letting my attention waver and for keeping me in breathless anticipation of what was going to happen next.
This is definitely an example of indie filmmaking gone terrifically right and storytelling at its best. If you’re a fan of the short film genre, like me, you’re going to LOVE this one.
