Fate Accompli (2012) – By Brian Morton

I have to admit, I love a movie that surprises me…and after all the movies I’ve seen in my life that can be quite an accomplishment! Well, a new short from writer/director Eric Neal, Fate Accompli, managed to do just that!

Gabriel is a hit man. He’s just checked into a hotel, presumably on the way to his next ‘job’. When he gets bored, Gabriel decides that maybe a call girl would be a nice distraction. Enter Faye, a hot call girl who seems to be more than she appears to be, attractive, smart and very cool, Faye is about to give Gabriel more than he bargained for.

Fate Accompli is an amazing little movie, filmed almost entirely in one room, but still managing to keep you on the edge of your seat for the better parts of half an hour. Both Walt Sloan and Erin Breen are perfectly cast, and the story is great and manages to take two completely different genres and blend them flawlessly! I’m giving Fate Accompli 4 out of 4 cigars; if you have the chance to check out this amazing short, don’t miss the opportunity….or maybe fate will be against you!
