Two Short Films: You Lose (2016); Come Together (2016).
To kick off my film reviewing in 2017, I present to you two (very) short films – one focusing on the sociological phenomenon of the Circle Game, and another, a Christmas special directed by Wes Anderson for Swedish fashion chain H&M. Both are slightly similar in their creative aspects, and both are great shorts. Onwards! […]
Two Short Films: Elms (2014); Home (2016).
Elms (2014) and Home (2016) are two very different short films indeed – one being a visual poem featuring the titular tree, and the other a short narrative focusing on a homeless woman portrayed brilliantly by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Both films are available to watch online, so I’ve linked them below should you wish to give […]
A Timely Blogathon: Seven Recommendations Under 90 Minutes!
This newest post for A Timely Blogathon (hosted by Movierob and myself) comes from Caz at Let’s Go To The Movies, and is a bit of a special one. Instead of writing a review for one film under 90 minutes, Caz decided to write recommendations for seven films under 90 minutes! What’s on the list? […]
A Timely Blogathon: Interesting Ball (2014)
A red ball bounces past a café and a couple folks’ houses and then goes to the beach. That is possibly the most innocuous synopsis of one of the weirdest and most emotionally stirring films that I’ve seen in recent times. Interesting Ball (2014, dir. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as ‘DANIELS’), is […]

Two Short Films: Ticky Tacky (2014); The Bumblebees (2014).
It’s been a while since I’ve watched some short films, but today/tonight I have two short films of particular interest. First, we have Ticky Tacky (2014), starring Oscar Isaacs as a crazy and powerful maniac, and second, The Bumblebees (2014), a stylistic girl gang tale. Both films are available to watch online, so I’ve linked […]
Blindspot 2016: The Witches (1967)
I usually save the weirdest films for earlier on in my Blindspot series posts, and this film is no exception. The Witches (1967), also known in its native Italian as Le Streghe, is presented by Dino de Laurentiis. It is a film composed of five short films within, each by a different director. The films-within-films are […]
Two Short Films: Bag Man (2014); The Heart of the World (2000).
I haven’t watched any short films for a while now, as I haven’t seen much that I’ve been interested by. However, today that changed when I watched two films which are quite different to one another – Bag Man (2014), and The Heart of the World (2000). Both differ in terms of story construction, direction […]
Chronos (1985): Quick-shot review!
It is my intention to watch all of the famous “time-lapse footage set to music” films. So far, I’ve watched Koyaanisqatsi (1982), but I also need to watch the next two in the Qatsi trilogy, and also Samsara (2011) and Baraka (1992). I love watching this style of film because they are generally relaxing, and […]
Tokyo! (2008): Transformation, anarchy, rebirth.
Originally posted on FILM GRIMOIRE:
Tokyo! (2008) is a collection of three short films, tied together by their location and surreal overtones. Three visionary directors team up for this bewildering film, each needing no introduction whatsoever – Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, and Bong Joon-ho. Each of the three short films has its own visual quirks,…
