A Stormy Night feels more like an uneven student film than an art house or indie film. The film takes place in a single night and location; giving it the feel of a play. The camera work is compelling. The shots are well framed and the camera moves organically around, creating a sense of claustrophobia and intimacy. Marcos has an easy job. His role is to act like a roguish vagabond artists who is above and bemused by social conventions. He is casually proactive mostly by staying quiet. Alan is supposed to be the anxiety ridden good boy. He follows the rules and is upset when other people seems to get away with ignoring them with little consequence. His role is too intense with speeches and rants that no human being would give, not even in their own heads. Neither character seems to grow or change. It is a single night with some mild tension.
