Crazy Hands

By Charlie Graley | Comedy
A man wakes up to discover his hands have a life of their own.

Spencer wakes up one morning only to discover that his hands have taken on a life of their own — they shake uncontrollably, disrupting all his everyday routines.

As he rides into town on his bike, his hands have other ideas and pull him into awkward situations where he tries to hide his affliction. But once he reaches his breaking point, he discovers the key to his ailment.

Director Charlie Graley’s engagingly fresh comedy short actually has a lot in common with classic comedians like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. Nearly dialogue-free, “Crazy Hands” relies on deft physical comedy, courtesy of lead actor David Schneider, and a keen visual humor. It also possesses a sharp sense of pacing that both keeps the joke going but allows us to engage in the character’s very real emotional dilemmas.

The result is an overall sweetness that works as a parable about feeling out of place in the world — and the role that self-acceptance plays in finding our confidence and authenticity. The film’s message that our flaws can be the keys to our happiness is an endearing one — and one that we’re always in need of reminding, no matter where we are in life.
