Two ex-lovers meet at a rarely-used Aspen lodge to reignite their passions, but first they must confess their past sins. Amber Schaefer directs “It’s Been Too Long,” an uproarious romance noir, written by and starring Krista Jensen and David Ebert, crammed with as many lustful one-liners and melodramatic reveals as could possibly fit in an 8 minute runtime. Bufinda and Chaniel arrive to their quarters for the night all horned up and ready to go, if not for their hugely complicated former lives. Old troubles come to light: Bufinda’s ex, Burt, is now in jail (“Attempted murder. But my neck is too strong”) and news of Chaniel’s “mean little wife” who left him just begin to scratch the surface. As they volley back and forth, considering all the things they’re not proud of, or things that have kept them apart, their sexual attraction keeps building. The film (or artistically-shot extended sketch if you prefer) hangs on a simple question: can Bufinda and Chaniel finish explaining their constantly expanding backstories in time to put their lust into action?
