Some of the most poignant, compelling SciFi stories are understated takes on everyday situations. Inconspicuous settings that engender tension and fear through suspicious, subtle cues of “something” being wrong. In the vein of the classic Twilight Zone episode, Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up, this thought-provoking short film, Bar Talk, explores these subtle themes with a bit of dry humor in a modern setting we can all relate to.
