Tell-Tale Review in The Art is Alive Magazine

“What sounds like a recipe for disaster turns out to be an artistic delight.”

The Art is Alive Magazine has published a review of my short film “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre“, written by Michael Haberfelner.

From the review:

I find this film riveting and remarkable because it has the master’s words set to music. Director/Composer/Actor Danny Ashkenasi sings Poe’s words into the camera during the entire duration of the picture.

What sounds like a recipe for disaster turns out to be an artistic delight. His avant-garde approach to both direction and music provides the audience with an electrifying and enchanting macabre motion picture.

By choosing to put himself as the center of attention instead of setting Poe’s words to pictures, he allowed for a marvelously moody accompaniment alongside his award-winning acting.

This project works so very well, and the exceptional editing* proved to provide the final point of perfection. Well done!
