Via Digg, found this great short movie called “Right Place” at YouTube, directed by Kosai Sakine
Right Place is an ‘almost silent’, five and a half minute movie. It tells the story of a young man with OCD, for whom working in a late-night convenience store is patently not a suitable career path. Walking home in the rain after being thrown out of his job, he finally discovers the right place in life that he’s been searching for …
“Right Place” was reported by “shots” as the most highly praised film at Asia-Pacific Advertising Festival in 2005. The showcase was held under the sponsorship of JAC (Japan Association of TV commercial Companies); young directors from five countries made films on the theme of “Fear No Change”.
TheListUniverse has posted a collection of 10 classic films from the 1920s, 30s and 40s that you can watch on Google Video. On the list, you’ll find Fritz Lang’s M, the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu, The Gold Rush with Charlie Chaplin, The General with Buster Keaton, and three films by the great Frank Capra — It Happened One Night (with Clark Gable), It’s a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (both with Jimmy Stewart).
Gold Rush by Charlie Chaplin (One of my all time favorite)
Great thing about user generated content publishing platforms of Web 2.0 is, you get many signals too in between mostly noises. Found these 2 great mini movies in YouTube.
