Long Term Delivery

By Jake Honig | Comedy
An elite USPS agent is determined to deliver a 10-year-old Christmas present.

Agent 4505 works for the U.S. government in a secret division of the U.S. Postal Service. His job is to deliver lost and forgotten parcels to their intended recipients.

He’s tasked with delivering a 10-year-old package, but it proves more difficult than he imagined. But there’s no telling to what lengths this dedicated agent will travel to get the job done.

Clever, inventive and always engaging, this short comedy takes an offbeat premise to its full extent, resulting in a delightful romp through governmental bureaucracy, complete with oddball characters, dry humor and many zany situations.

Initially striking for its unusual set-up, the film zigzags along thanks to a well-paced, engaging screenplay and terrifically droll performances, especially from actor Peter Smith, who gives a wonderfully calibrated twist to the central role. The locations possess the unmistakable patina of authenticity, but the camera captures them in a heightened way, creating the sense of a forgotten pocket of Americana.

The tone of “Long Term Delivery” is hugely memorable, and owes a debt to cult shows like “Twin Peaks,” with its blend of rural surreality. But the feel is loose, warm and lighthearted, creating a world and atmosphere that viewers will likely want more of by the film’s end.

Truly original in idea and beautifully executed, “Long Term Delivery” is a wonderful idea brought to life by a nimble story and sharply witty performances, a small slice of wonderland that takes the mundane irritation of a late package and spins it into comedic gold.
