<1> An animation with a brilliant concept, intriguing. Like the entirely unexpected ending; you’ll end up asking yourself why you have never thought that could happen.  Stay for the after-credits heh.

<2> Warning, violent scenes. But otherwise, this action-packed short film borders on the psychedelic. Once again, watch it in its entirety.

<3> A documentary worthy of our time. We should better appreciate the people who do the jobs no one wants to do.

<1> Something cheesy to start with. You can never get tired of cute and lovely animations like this.

<2> A splendid filmography by Martin Woutisseth. Tim Burton’s works have accompanied me through two decades of my life, and watching this animation evoked a fair bit of nostalgia. Edward Scissorshand, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, 9 and Alice in Wonderland!  It’s like remembering the taste of ice-cream you had when you were young.

<3> Where else better to witness the passing of relentless time than a man’s toilet mirror?

Monday’s the start of the week. A new start, after a hard-earned break over the weekends. Not necessarily so, because many people do work on weekends to keep the world spinning.

My reader feeds me with inspiring short films from various blogs, and I always get new feelings watching the different films made by different people, telling their stories. Film is not the only way of telling stories, but it can be the most captivating.

So here I have, three films to share on this particular Monday. I play the classical guitar myself, and that interest resonates with the first film. Sometimes I aspire to play music like that, but it is apparent that my lack of discipline will never bring me that far. The second film’s pretty breathtaking. Lots of cliches, nevertheless you can take away a deal of feelings from it. And while I don’t quite agree with the biology behind the third film, it is certainly one of my favorites. Wicked.

So take some time off and enjoy these films in full-screen, for they are so much better than what we have on television. And you’ll be all set for the week ahead.
