Very enjoyable. It didn't overstay it's welcome. I particularly liked the scene where the judge threw the book at him - literally!. :D

Excellent work and ironic use of modern technology to make a film look "old." Witty script!

Excellent stuff on your channel. For mainstream appeal nowadays there is not nearly enough Chinese Muslim she-males and gay biracial relationships in your shorts. Great work.
