If you had the opportunity to ask God one single question, what would it be? Insurance clerk Ike must have had just the exact same thought, before he got chosen for the one life opportunity of actually interviewing God.
In his short movie „Ike Interviews God“, writer and director Eli Shapiro displays us this uber-visionary scenario, where the „most average man in the world“ aka Ike is given the chance to have a chit chat with a very vengeful, and yes, feminine God.
Rarely, has the topic of an apocalype got me cringing and smiling as much as Shapiro’s short movie eventually did. Truly, this might actually be the best dark comedy about us human beings destroying our own habitation.
