Silent accusation

Filmmaker Mike Bonomo recently shared a link to his fascinating film short, “Never Again.” It really is a gem for what it doesn’t explicitly reveal—instead it demands the viewer pay attention in order to parse context and find meaning in the few short minutes during which you see events unfold.


It has no dialogue, yet it manages to tell an intriguing story. It’s engaging in a discomforting, but satisfying way. Repeated viewings revealed certain details. Clues, perhaps. And while I’m no closer to knowing the complete tale, it is one very well told.
