An overturned lamp lies on a carpeted floor. An electric guitar is cradled in the lap of a beautiful blonde. The gorgeous woman is later pictured on all fours inching toward a bright window. Tension fills every frame. Somewhere in between Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch are these scenes and more, which are part of an arresting 116-second short film for Vogue Korea by director Raf Stahelin starring Suki Waterhouse. The face of Burberry Brit Rhythm is captured with grace and precision with a Red Epic camera. The camera movement and angles throughout sustain a heightened sense of suspense, but it is Suki Waterhouse who makes this short feature a true thriller.
