Riley Stearns’ ‘The Cub’ Is A Hilarious Short With A Brutal Punchline

Last year Riley Stearns gave us the great short Magnificat, which a lot of you guys dug when we posted it here on the site. Now he’s unveiled his newest work, The Cub, which is a complete 180 from Magnificat in terms of tone but is every bit as good.

I love how the measured (almost Wes Anderson-ish) cadence collides with the short’s quick, brutal end. There’s no “twist,” you see it coming – but it’s handled with a stark frankness that most filmmakers aren’t confident enough to implement. Stearns has a feature in the works with the producers of You’re Next, tide yourself over with this in the meantime.
