THE GOOD BOY, 15min, Drama/Sports, USA
Directed by Alice L. Lee

the_good_boy_movie_poster

A morality tale, “the good boy” is a film about a young boxer who accepts a challenge to fight a brute of a man only to discover his opponent has the mental capacity of a five year old. This is an unflinching look at what happens when everything you want hinges upon doing something unforgivable, and the consequences of making the wrong decision.

Director’s Statement

I’d been studying the films of Krzysztof Kieslowski (Double Life of Veronique, Dekalog, Blue, White Red) when I was writing “the good boy”. Watching those masterpieces, you can’t help but think about moral dilemmas. Why do people knowingly decide to do something that they know is morally wrong?

I started to watch my own actions and the actions of my friends. I realized that it’s easy for most people to do the right thing if they believe they don’t have much at stake. But it’s just as easy for most people to convince themselves that what’s at stake is more than what they’re willing to pay. Honor, loyalty, money, religion and even love are used on micro and global levels to justify our actions; even actions we know are morally abhorrent.

For Cal, the young boxer, what’s at stake is his deal with Ray. “No losin’, no forfeitin’.” He feels honor bound to Ray. The stake for Quinny is more tragic because what he wants is the love and respect of his step-father and the patrons of their bar. I wanted to explore the consequence of a room full of people, one after another, deciding to do what they know is morally wrong and how they justify their decisions to themselves.

Good God Get a Grip Girl!, Poetry by Gun Roswell

“No tea, no shade honey!” RuPaul’s Drag Race

Genre: Woman, Rhyme, Drama

Good God Get a Grip Girl!

You may
Think
You’re the
Cat’s meow
But let’s see
How you
Really feel
After I
Tell you
About
What you
Actually are

I’m not
Trying to
Come for you
Offend you
Upset you
Or even
Resent you
In any way

But this is
What it is
How it is
Really like

Why
Don’t you
Give yourself
A really good
Look in
The mirror
And tell me
Can you
Get a grip
On it!
