Indie filmmaker Kapil Ghatwai’s latest short film, “The Dilemma of Aiden Wolowitz,” is a hilarious and thought-provoking exploration of the perils of college life. The dark comedy follows the misadventures of Aiden, a sophomore who is trying to get laid at a pre-game at his crush’s house. However, things take a strange turn when his best friend slips him a new hallucinogenic drug, and Aiden finds himself in a surreal and nightmarish world.

Kapil Ghatwai’s clever writing and sharp direction are on full display in this film, which deftly balances comedy and absurdity. The characters are well-developed and relatable, and the dialogue is sharp and witty.
