Salome is based on an Oscar Wilde's classic play from 1896. The film is a about a princess who is imprudent. She begins to be obsessed with a female prisoner. Soon, she is forced to dance for Queen Herod. This will lead her down a road that might prove deadly for her and the prisoner she's obsessed with.
Salome is a very interesting short film. It was nice change of pace to see any type of feature without any dialogue. I thought directors Alexia Anastasio (also stars as the title character in the film) and Kevin Sean Michaels did a good job directing the actors through the motions of this performance art piece. I liked how the film lets you use your imagination, as it was shot using blue background.
Ari Lehman did the score for this film. But horror fans might know him, as the first person to play Jason Vorhees in the original Friday the 13th. His score was very good, as it's a key component to this film. It helps create the visual experience that used in this performance art piece.
Salome is a nice short film that's uses a performance arts setting to makes you use your imagination.
