You’ve seen him sing his heart out in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” keep his cool under pressure in “A Most Violent Year” and fly the hell out of an X-Wing in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” but now you can see the great Oscar Isaac like you never have before: out of his mind and thirsty for bloody revenge.
Written and directed by Brian Petsos, the dark comedy short film “Ticky Tacky” takes place in one stunningly-designed office over three crucial days in the life of a wealthy and powerful man. On the first day, he finds out his wife is cheating on him with his cousin. On the second, his young henchman and spy delivers a suitcase full of guns. On the third, well, let’s just say that the insanity that goes down has to be seen to be believed.
Playing the main character with the bravado we expect, Isaac delivers the most off-the-rockers performance of his career so far, even more unhinged, unstable and desperate than his excellent work in “Ex Machina.” Watch the entire short below, courtesy of Petsos’ Vimeo page.
