Stolen cookies are the basis for this modern parable set in a laundromat while people fold clothes. The setup is so simple: a young woman sees an old man’s actions as suspicious and her anger rises. This is a visual piece, and Vancouverite Todd Dyum’s cinematography is terrific. Basked in a wonderfully moody blue-while light, the camera work captures the tense atmosphere of this little standoff with a real economy of shots and movement. Absolutely beautiful.
