Director's Comments

Can a simple man touch the sky?

This is my entry for THAC 8. I stayed up until the last two hours editing it.

Staff Review

Graeme Allen:
It's not profound, exciting, or the most hilarious thing I've ever seen, but is simply the story of a man (or boy) who dreams of building a tower and does just that, and is, personally, one of my favorite THAC 8 entries. It does have some flaws, but these are so minor they don't take away from the entertainment value of the film, so I do recommend you give this at least one viewing.
