Early 20th-century metal toys brought to life with animation, plus philosophical narration about the toy's role in childhood.

Wild. Humans sitting on toilets, squashing bugs, etc. via jarring stop-motion editing. For Toshio Matsumoto and Takashi Ito fans?

Zzzzz, what a thoroughly uninteresting film. "Silent Faces in Unforeseen Places" would have been a much more apt title, except it would spoil about 90% of the story.

Also, for a film of its kind, the lighting was astoundingly dull and bland.

ClassicLady is right about the main fight scene being weak sauce, but I liked this film more than I thought I would. The one bit that irked me: spoiler

What a strange film. There's "deadpan," and then there's "No one told the director it was a comedy."

I'm guessing this film had an unusually high merkin budget.

Why did such a top director and actors want to make a lousy horror movie? Plus: Ann-Margret's nipple. Minus: her weird eyebrows and Hopkins' fake sweat.

Such a frustrating film. Liked most of it better than I thought I would. But this script was so in need of editing. Everything involving Dennis Haysbert and Amy Brenneman should have been thrown out. And the ending drove me bananas. spoiler

This is great! I don't know how I managed to avoid being pointed at this film until today. Experimental British short with an eerie Robert Wyatt soundtrack.

Experimental short, worth a look. Colorful, flickering montage of images of a woman, plus a looped bit of harpischord music.

Those effects with the forward/backward combinations were so high-tech amazing, but then when spoiler

This film is roughly 8% as fun to watch as its title suggests.

Eek. This has more missing-runtime films than almost any other list.

This is one of the least deserving films I've seen from TSPDT's top 1000, and this one is even in the top *500*. Incredible. The values of this film are thoroughly archaic. Every woman is a doormat, and every guy's biggest concern is finding the next cigarette and shot of whisky. There's one scene where Sinatra and Martin get a woman so drunk that she literally turns into a walking zombie. Meanwhile, three major plotlines (spoiler) end without a resolution. And Sinatra and Martin do not sing, but Maclaine does. Oh yeah, THAT makes sense.

Zama may involve more production companies than any film I've ever seen. Wow...so many logos.

Amazon Prime thinks it has this movie, but it's actually this movie instead:

Now on HBO Max. The film is fine, but the opening credits are the best part!

Awful. So typical of the ridiculously heavy-handed message films that win the short-subject Oscars.
