The Trail’s End

By David Rosenbaum | Sci-Fi
On the final day of his life, an android has an unexpected encounter that alters the course of his existence.

An android has reached the final day of his existence, after which he will no longer be useful to his masters.

But then he has an unexpected encounter, meeting a beautiful, powerful woman, which changes his sense of who he is and what he can do.

Director David Rosenbaum offers an intriguing sci-fi take on the classic story of “Bonnie and Clyde,” positing Clyde as a robot who breaks free of his constraints.

The original Bonnie and Clyde were a Texan Depression-era couple who robbed banks together, capturing the popular imagination with their air of outlaw glamour and tragic yet passionate romance. The real-life couple drew headlines for their string of bank robberies and murders, while the mythology that grew around them gave rise to film classics like “Bonnie and Clyde” and homages like Serge Gainsbourg’s song named after the couple.

David Rosenbaum’s ingenuous sci-fi short offers an intriguing spin on their story, wondering what would happen if Clyde had been a robot? This high concept is sharp and potentially flashy, but the film treats the idea with fresh creativity, marrying solid performances with remarkably seamless special effects.

But this is no typical sci-fi film. Perhaps inspired by the mix of period detail, history and a dash of film noir, the cinematography is beautifully warm, and the production and costume design is perfectly old-fashioned without being distractingly nostalgic.

All the elements combine to create a uniquely engaging cinematic experience that feels larger than its short 9-minute runtime. Viewers will arrive at the end wanting more.
