Happy Short Film Friday!

I’ve been fascinated by the internet phenomenon known as Supercut: A fast-paced montage of short video clips that obsessively isolates a single element from its source, usually a word, phrase, or cliche from film and TV. Supercut.org collects every known example of the video remix meme.

I have been tinkering with a Supercut of my own. In the meantime enjoy these two excellent examples.

Top 5 Movies of 2011

Article Posted on Friday, December, 30th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

5. Midnight in Paris is funny, wistful and playful. It’s nothing out of the ordinary for Woody Allen but enjoyable nonetheless.

4. 13 Assassins – The epically long battle scene at the end should be more than enough for you to see this fantastic action film.

3. I Saw the Devil – This film is not for everyone but if you have a stomach for it will impress. An extremely violent revenge tale where the good guy is bad makes all other South Korean revenge films seem tame in comparison. Kim Jee-woon continues to make interesting genre films.

2. Certified Copy – The transformation of Juliette Binoche & William Shimell relationship is both odd and fascinating. Kiarostami layers this drama with intricacies that are discovered long after viewing.

1. Meek’s Cutoff – I love westerns. This revisionist western proves that the genre isn’t completely dead. The editing and photography are incredible

Honorable mentions: Poetry, Terri, Attack of the Block, Dogtooth, Drive, The Guard, Warrior
