My twentieth poll ended with four votes, including one vote from me for LIFE IS SHORT 2, OBABA, 1/3 OF THE EYES, SIDA: SRI RAM?, TAKE THE 5:10 TO DREAMLAND, VIDEO 50, and WELCOME TO NOTHING.

–I just found out that UBU has one of my most favorite short films last year. It’s FIREMAN E. A. WINTERSTEIN (1968, Alexander Kluge, West Germany, A++++++++++). You can watch the film here:

The film is full of disconnected parts, and has no English subtitles. But I think you will surely be puzzled and never understand the film with or without the subtitles.
