- Summary: You Hurt My Feelings started as one in a series of shorts I undertook with my friend and producer Jonathan Silberberg. It was a way of getting some forward movement on our work and not being as precious about what our next “big” project would be. We invited two of my favorite actors to stay up in Connecticut with us, and we shot four shorts over two weeks in January of 2009. One of the shorts, about a tumultuous day in the life of a troubled male nanny, had more mystery and spark than the others and that became the first 15 minutes of You Hurt My Feelings.

Unfolding in New England over four vibrantly represented seasons, "Feelings" is a small-scale wonder. Pivotal events play out in the spaces between scenes, leaving only emotional imprints that we interpret within a timeline that may not be entirely linear.
May 1, 2012For all of its gradual build and minimalist focus, the film misses out on something essential, something more crucial than clarity, context, and connecting tissue - all of which the film aggressively eschews. It lacks a center, a sense that within its strenuously ambiguous story is a thrumming motor.
