Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been on quite a momentous roll over the past few years. He had major supporting roles in “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Inception“. He has also starred in several independent films this year that have garnered critical praise including the sci-fi noir film “Looper“. He has his own online production company entitled, hitRECord which has him collaborating with a people on a variety of projects. One of those projects was the 2010 short film, “Morgan M. Morgansen’s Date with Destiny”.
This short film stars Gordon-Levitt as the title character Morgan M. Morgansen who prepares to have a date with a woman named Destiny. Gordon-Levitt narrates the short by using nonsensical and humourous words that sound like they came straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. The short is amazing visually with so much going on throughout it including black and white shots juxtaposed with 2D drawings. The five minute film is a captivating take on two people seeking a romantic connection.
