Written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, and directed by David Karlak, The Candidate is something of a classic psychological thriller short film despite its lack of major awards. It is perhaps a little heavy-handed by today's standards but its simple concept remains its strength. Burton Grunzer has a problem and that problem is his colleague Whitman Hayes. When a strange man arrives from the Society of United Action seeking ten minutes of his time, Burton agrees to hear him out. It appears the Society has a unique and seemingly lawful method of disposing of an adversary and want to know if Burton believes the method could work for him. A cameo by Meghan Markle as Burton's assistant adds an interesting footnote to this psychological thriller. If you like The Candidate by David Karlak, be sure to rate it and share it.
