#TSB10 Short Film Watchlist

Every Wednesday during #TSB10 (20 February 2015 to 19 February 2016), I will be posting short film responses, split across four subjects. The four subjects are: nineteen of Buster Keaton’s silent short films, the ten films in Krzysztof Kieślowski’s The Decalogue, the seventeen episodes of the British anthology television series “Journey to the Unknown,” and, finally, Jacques Tati’s short film work, recently released remastered on Blu-ray from Criterion. I have seen and written about one of Tati’s short films already for the site (The School for Postmen), which brings the number down to a perfect six. Fifty-two short films for fifty-two weeks.
