Four shorts ("Knoten," "Gewebe," "Textur" and "Geflecht") combined. I liked "Gewebe" (closeups of a woman's nude body undulating in water, plus a neat electronic score) much, much more than the other three, so it seemed a shame for it to be bundled with the rest.

The film is dated 1962, yet the soundtrack is the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There." Which was recorded in 1963. Still, you gotta give Jordan for jumping on the Beatles bandwagon early!

Shittiest concept for a short film ever. Snow listens to opera at home while panning around his stereo system in extreme close-up.

On KG. I wasn't expecting much, but this turned out to be quite good. The hook is hearing an abducted woman speaking "in code" to an emergency operator such that her captor won't realize she's calling for help.

Exquisitely beautiful imagery (Egyptian desert, royal garb, etc.), but the film is a 20-minute fortune cookie. :)

IMDb needs some expansion here. "Out Yonder" is actually a three-part film including sections "Neighbor Boy," "Teeth" and "Chicken." Totalling about 40 minutes. It's also complete garbage. I suppose Lynch and his son had some fun making these.

This was the 153rd short I've seen from 1966, and it was thoroughly wonderful. A psychedelic look at a New York gallery opening with Edie Sedgwick, William Burroughs, Janye Mansfield, Andy Warhol and more. In case anyone happens to ask you what was the greatest year ever for short film, just say 1966.

I've known the director/animator practically all my life.

I just can't figure out why the guy is sneaking around the neighborhood trying to steal trees. And you're going to do that, why do it in the daytime? Strange racket. :)

Interesting BBC documentary about experimental music in the '50s and '60s. Look fast for a shot of Brian Eno with the Portsmouth Sinfonia....

Experimental short, with a bit of experimental rock music (Thurston Moore!) in the bargain.

If you want to test the power of your external woofer, this is the perfect film.

One of my biggest movie pet peeves is excessive narration and, boy, is this film a violator. Why have narration describing EXACTLY WHAT'S ONSCREEN? "A man with a white cane walks arm in arm
with a lady in a black dress and hat, and next to another lady." Yes, I figured that out for myself, thanks. Maddening.

Tragic, macabre, harrowing tale about the last days of a starving, freezing boy who's too thick to even learn it's dangerous to ride a horse without holding on. Surely far too intense for children. Surprising contributors include J.J. Abrams, Woody Harrelson, Gabriel Byrne, Idris Elba and Fleabag's sister.

Beautifully shot, existential two-hander, all shot at the beach.

A bit nicer print, plus an elegant musical score?

I just saw this, and it was quite good. Seems like it ought to be on this list.

A good ending saves an otherwise dull-ish film, where there's little suspense because the avenging hero is invincible and never has a vulnerable moment. And the dubbed Klaus Kinski is hard to swallow.

Three minutes longer than Nathan's version? Might just be a case of frame speed. For 1915, this is a damn good film. And, dare I say, eventually quite woo-woo sexy.

Longer than Daisy's link? I never trust archive.org...often inferior versions of films. Maybe the archive version just runs a little faster.
