Default Short Movies only

I've been watching a lot of short movies the couple of years, and there's some really quality stuff out there. Plus we're taking a course about it, so it has become a weekly thing for me, as it is the only thing I'll be doing the next three years.

So I felt Short Movies should have a thread of their own. It would be a cool place to recommend some stuff, right some sort of review and give a link to their videos, cause it can be easily watched on youtube (Not high big screen quality, but I think it can work for a 15 minutes movie).

I'll be recommending my share whenever I remember a good one, and today was one of those days:

TRUE (2006) by Tom Tykwer

A short movie that was then compiled with others in Paris, Je t'aime (named in the movie "Faubourg Saint Denis") starring Nathalie Portman. It's one of the subtlest things I've seen, so simple and so heartfelt. It's a simple boy meets girl story, but so nicely done.



Or just watch it full screen on youtube: YouTube - Paris, je t'aime - Tom Tykwer


Another completely different one that I felt like talking about:

THE HEART OF THE WORLD (2000) by Guy Madden

A short movie that gives homage to German expressionist films and Silent movies in all, so it's one of those silent shorts. It's got a bit of an absurd plot, a bit reminiscent of Melies' "A trip to the moon" (1902). It's about Anna, a scientist, just discovering that the heart of the world is going to stop (a kind of a heart attack) in exactly one day. I don't want to tell much of it, cause it is only a 6 minute movie.

Here's the link for youtube: YouTube - GUY MADDIN - The Heart of the World

or just watch here:



These are two short movies that I never was able to forget. Replies would be appreciated.

Enjoy!

What's In The Box? - Tim Smit

Little is to be known about this short little film besides the fact that it was made with a little over $250. Pretty amazing considering how good it looks.

^ Thanks for sharing, really nice short.

I remembered this one today.
Great imagery, great story in a surreal industrial world. It's the first movie by Juan Diego Solanas, a really successful DOP, that's trying to start his directing career. An 18 minutes short, that took him 3 minutes to finish ... The result is fascinating.

L'HOMME SANS TETE (The Man without a Head)-2003

PART2


Enjoy!

Edit: Damn! just noticed it's not translated to English, just a sec and I'll edit the link.
Re-Edit: There's no English translation, but it still can be understood.

I got you

Many good short movies by David Lynch, his finest work I feel. So raw, without the good cinema touch ups.
He has so many, so I don't know which you mean.

Here are my favorite David Lynch short movies, in chronological order.

First: Six men Getting Sick (1966), his first short movie.



Second: The Alphabet (1968), his second short movie, based on his Ex-wife's nightmare (She's also the actress in the short).



Third: The Grandmother, a short movie made with the money of the AFI grant. His best!
Some twisted surreal story about a boy growing his own grandmother.

** I was putting the 5 parts of it, but seems one of the links don't work.

So here's an extra one:
David Lynch for the Lumière project, a very interesting, very Brief short movie.



And finally another one, segment ABSURDA.



Enjoy, the extremely Lynchy post.
When "The Grandmother" link is fixed, I'll post it ASAP.

STORY TIME (1968) by Terry Gilliam



A really funny animated short movie ... from the earlier works of the 6th Monty Python.
Enjoy.

La Jetée - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Probably my favourite short film but too long for this thread

A Close Shave by Scorsese is another fave but no YT for that.

Click on short films here: shanemeadows.co.uk for Shane Meadows. I have a few on various DVD'S and he made some great stuff especially with Paddy Consindine.

I totally forgot about that one, tho I kind of made this thread to share this movie in particular.
Not too long at all, one of the most influential shorts that I had to watch on youtube many times for some Stop-motion inspiration.

Here is the movie that inspired Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys

LA JETÉE (1962) by Chris Marker

A fantastic poetic short movie I discovered yesterday. One of Tim Burton's finest works, made in 1982. It's about a boy called Vincent, obsessed with the macabre world of Vincent Price. The short is even narrated by actor Vincent Price himself, an actor that later starred in many other Burton projects.

Here is, the long awaited Vincent:

VINCENT (1982) by Tim Burton



Enjoy.
