I loved this short!! Cashed is an intelligent film that examines the reality of capitalism, work culture fatigue, mounting college debt, and societal pressures while highlighting the ultimate price we pay for wanting to self-medicate to deal with the aforementioned issues. This is a short film that will have you in conversation long after the film is done. In 11 minutes, director Ethan Itzkow was able to examine the relatable pressures we face on a daily basis in a nuanced and tactful manner. Actress Serena Ryen gives a raw, emotionally layered, and heartfelt performance as a struggling Millennial in NYC. Cinematographer Jorge Arzac also adds another layer of dimension to the short with impressive visuals. This film is truly a coming of age piece for the Millennial generation, where its relevancy will (sadly) last long into the next, if there isn't change. I hope these filmmakers continue to make films!

Excellent portrayal of the struggles of living in New York
Verified purchase
A short and poignant film about life in New York like many live it and few get to see portrayed on film.

It's refreshing to see a film written by and revolving around a woman. It's beautifully shot, considering it's all in one apartment. Jorge Arzac seems to be a very talented cinematographer. The directing probably deserves some of the credit for that too.

The curly dealer guy gave me the creeps.. I guess he's a good actor then?

Watch it. I can only recommend it.

Trigger Warning: This Is Relatable Content

There are so many moments in this movie where I double-take at expressions of things that I've experienced. Ryen is nuanced and relatable and so so talented! The direction and camerawork are engaging, and creative making the tiny NYC apartment that this was shot in dynamic and different with every shot! Can't wait to see what this team comes up with next!

Cool & Raw Short
Verified purchase
Awesome work, great acting and directing, some really cool camera work (close shots / slow motion at the end when the heroine finally smokes). Uplifting ending as the audience is let to believe that have a feeling she will be all right and things will turn to the better! Great film overall and highly relatable context!

Captivating! There are so many details to love in Cashed (beautiful camera work, acting, and music) but above all the story is intensely relatable. I'll be thinking about this short film for a long time. Can't wait to see more from these creators in the future...

I know these people and they're better artists than I am for putting themselves out there and making their own work. Go out there and get it like my friends/colleagues SERENA RYAN and ETHAN ITZKOW!
