Top 5 Shorts 10-20 min

This is the second post in my top 5 shorts series. To read the first one click here.

Nr. 5: The Great Train Robbery (1903)

Genre: Western

The first western ever made, it simply shows how a usual train robbery works, without any kind of side plot. The interesting thing here is that it reflects the reality from when it was made. 

Directed by: Edwin S. Porter

Nr. 4: Validation (2007)

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Over a hundred years later this short was made. It's a very optimistic and consciously a little cheesy story about a man that offers free compliments to anybody.

Directed by: Kurt Kuenne

Nr. 3: Vinni-puhk (1969)

Genre: Comedy, Family

Winnie the Pooh, in Russia. Personally, I like this much better than the Disney version. 

Directed by: Fyodor Khitruk

Nr. 2: Meshes in the Afternoon (1943)

Genre: Mystery, Experimental, (Horror)

A experimental mystery short. I don't know what to say about it, just watch it yourself. The man with the mirror-face is one of the creepiest characters ever.

Directed by: Maya Deren

Nr. 1: Ilha das Flores (1990)

Genre: Documentary, Comedy

A short documentary about the class differences between people, that at the same time manages to be both tragic and funny.

Directed by: Jorge Furtado
