Michael Cera's Brazzaville Teen-Ager

Not everything that comes from the YouTube channel Jash is required to be a short sketch it seems. In this well-produced short film. Michael Cera plays the role of a young man who will stop at nothing to help better his sick father. Cera's obsession with helping his father leads him into an interesting obsession with life and death and how one out of the ordinary instance can change everything.

I was pretty damn impressed with the work put into this short, especially for something released through YouTube. It holds a very similar vibe to some of David Lynch's work along eery sound techniques really start to f*ck with your head. While it is a bit on the long side (20-minutes) I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with how well this turned out, so long as you're okay with Michael Cera's acting style and a story that makes little to no sense upon first viewing.
