Quickshots- Yellow Hill: The Stranger's Tale

I really tried to like this short film but... ugh, it is terrible.  Brutal, ugly, painful, no fun at all.  Which is a shame, because it stars Bai Ling, an actress that I really enjoy and don't see nearly enough on the screen.  Yellow Hill is a 15 minute short tale of revenge and people doing horrible things to each other.  The schtick is that it involves a Chinese woman in the West, rather than the white woman who is usually victimized in twisted and ugly revenge tales, but that variation alone doesn't rescue the film.  It can be seen over at Vimeo, on Facebook, or the vid below, but why would you want to?  If anyone out there likes it, let me know why.
