I'd completely forgotten, after watching Sayid carry around a jar of human testicles in Planet Terror, that Robert Rodriguez made sweet kiddie films. His latest, Shorts, follows the strange residents of privately owned Black Falls.

In Black Falls all the houses are identical and everyone works for the corporation Black Box. Main character discovers a magical rock from space - or something like that - that grants wishes. But we all know that wishes are never what they you expect. Shorts will be out in theaters August 7th.
