Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lensed in 16mm black and white on a princely budget of $10,000, Little Stiff is rather obviously an outgrowth of a student film project. Codirector/cowriter Caveh Zahedi plays a dweebish UCLA film major, while his collaborator Greg Watkins costars as his best pal. Zahedi carries a torch for a pretty art student-who, in a burst of Pirandello, is played by Zahedi's real-life ex-flame Erin McKim.
