Thunder Road is an extremely funny (and also deeply felt) short film, that was filmed in a single-take. It’s a tragicomedy about a police officer’s eulogy at his mother’s funeral and centres around an incredible performance by writer-director Jim Cummings. You should wait until about half way through for the musical cue made possible after the writer/director made a direct appeal to Bruce Springsteen to waive the non-festival film rights.
