Regret and Guilt--Chelsea Style

Jesper Just's arty film, "It Will All End in Tears," has enough archetypes and symbolism in it to keep any film student happy. The 20-minute trilogy, which is being screened at Perry Rubenstein gallery, follows a nameless older man who is haunted by something he did in his past. The film has no dialogue but a lot of music, including a sort of Greek Chorus--The Finnish Screaming Men's Choir. The mini-flick's story is an intriguing little puzzle. The film leaves you sensing the main character's feelings of crushing regret and guilt. (Images via Perry Rubenstein gallery,
