SpelingError's Top 100 Favorite Short Films

Tools    





I forgot the opening line.
Since this has started, have you guys had a chance to check out some of the listed shorts?
I really enjoyed Talking Heads, At Land and Inspiration the most - my personal favourites so far. Ŕ Propos De Nice inspired me to crack open my Complete Films of Jean Vigo Criterion set, and catching A Trip to the Moon was well overdue.

Several. The stop animation ones are my favorite so far, especially Balance.



Sorry if I'm rude but I'm right
Good list so far.

I mainline Windex and horse tranquilizer
GO ON.

Oops. That might disappoint Mr Minio. I recall him saying he isn’t much of a fan of Svankmajer.
Unless this is an exception
I better replace it with an Asian film before he reads this thread.

The Flat (1968, Jan Švankmajer)



That was a weird one. Reminds me of Brothers Quay.



NOTE: There are a couple versions of this film floating around the internet, but the correct one is on Vimeo and is just under 22 minutes. I would recommend muting the soundtrack.

Fuses (1967, Carolee Schneemann)



Probably should've mentioned that the short has straight up XXX scenes in it. I was watching it while on break at work.


Luckily, no one was sitting next to me.

Sorry about that. Whenever I watch something in public, I always look it up to determine if I can watch it safely in public or if I should watch it on my own time.



Balance is a good one.

I used it with my students one year when we were learning about theme/morals. Silent films are great for that because there's not as much of a barrier for students who have slower processing.

I'd likely show Tarkovsky in hopes of turning them into cinephiles.

Though yeah, Balance would be a great choice for a younger audience. It's appropriate for pretty much all ages and not particularly subtle about its themes, which would be ideal for a younger generation.
