Cinematic excellence doesn’t have to come in 90-minute slabs, so here I look at the very best short movies around. If you’ve got a little spare time, bang one of these beauties on – satisfaction guaranteed.
#6: Exogenesis Part 3: Redemption 
This edition of Unmissable Short Films takes on a more musical slant. British space-wank supergroup Muse have recently teamed up with the Japanese comedian-come-animator Tekken (yeah, that’s not his real name) to create this intensely moving study of one flawed man’s life, and the core relationship with his wonderful wife. It’s crudely drawn aesthetic only adds to its endearing qualities, more of which include an inclination toward ambitious cinematographic tropes; we view almost the entirety of the piece through a swinging pendulum, all set – not simply laid on top – of Muse’s already haunting, yet optimistic classical offering.
There’s a perfect synergy between image and sound, both their messages intwined – one message of which is probably the most important you can learn. You’ll just have to watch to find out.
