1. Glas (1958, Bert Haanstra)
I thought this and Rotterdam Europoort were completely amazing, then I watched each again. This one became more amazing and Rotterdam less.
2. Very / Night Mulch (2001, Stan Brakhage)
You can’t beat Brakhage on the big screen.
3. Walker (2012, Tsai Ming-liang)
4. Partysaurus Rex (2012, Mark Walsh)
These were, respectively, the slowest and fastest shorts of the year.
5. Poetic Justice (1972, Hollis Frampton)
6. Lost Buildings (2004, Chris Ware & Ira Glass)
7. Ako (1964, Hiroshi Teshigahara)
8. The Eraser (1977, Shuji Terayama)
9. Fantasmagorie (1908, Emile Cohl) and 78 Tours (1985, Georges Schwizgebel)
Two unrelated animations, lifetimes apart, featuring lots of things morphing into other things.
10. The Wholly Family (2011, Terry Gilliam)
