Short films: Movie essay about close-ups

Prime Minister’s Question TimeThis is easily the best original web video montage I’ve ever seen. Click on over to the amazing Jim Emerson’s post “Close Up: The movie/essay/dream” to view his film and read his thoughts on the close-up and why he decided to create an essay of moving images to visualize his thoughts. The result is… I don’t know what to say. It’s akin to the fantastic scene in Day for Night, when Truffaut’s director character opens a package that contains books on all his cinema idols and friends. It’s quite simply about being in love with cinema. And I salute it!
