The Best Short Film

Jason Schwartzman Celebrates John Baldessari

Whoever wrote this short film/advertisement for the Pacific Standard Time exhibit is a  genius. There are three other videos linked below but this one is my favorite. I love the story and the acting. Every once in a while I come across a film that makes me say "Wow, I wish I had done that". I don't say this about every film that I think is great but about films that speak so loudly to me that I think about said film at least once a week. Here's a list of those films:

Gas Food Lodging by Allison Anders
Ghost World by Terry Zwigoff
American Splendor by Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini
Blue Valentine by Derek Cianfrance
And the above short film - I wish I knew who wrote/directed it

Watch these great short films/PST advertisements - these have been feeding my muse since I first set eyes on them a few months back.
