Riddle Me This Short Film
Ben Heald and Mark Haggett have delivered a riveting fan-film that well exceeds its proceeding tale, both narratively and technically. Haggett and Christopher Jacques portray outstanding performances throughout, but the glory is within Joshua Patrick Dudley’s blazing performance as The Riddler. Captivating viewing from start to finish. Cinematography and costume design is of high quality – which deserves acclaim. Sound and post-production are equally commendable. Gripping viewing.
