Glass Eyes of Locust Bayou from Simon Mercer on Vimeo.

Simon Mercer's "Glass Eyes of Locust Bayou," the great short film about the Arkansas filmmaker Phil Chambliss that screened at last month's Little Rock Film Festival and which I wrote about for the paper at the time, is now online so you can watch it for free. This is good news for the Internet and for the state of Arkansas. Take fifteen minutes and watch this thing.
