2011’s Top 5 shorts–James DePaolo

1. Roid Rage- how can anything else be number one. This is by far the most fucked up and just obnoxious short I have seen in a long time. If this short is any indication…2012 and Roid Rage is going to be massive..fucking awesome stuff…a must..

 

2.Brutal Relax-Believe the hype…that is all I can say..truly believe the hype…this is that film…

 

 

3.The Giant Rubber Monster Movie ( From the Collective-The Meat Eater, Trio of Terror and almost any Thomas Berdinski dvd) Thomas Berdinski plays Sascratch and he is going to save us all from destruction. This film just has so much heart and passion, how can you not support it?

 

 

4.Snapcase ( From the Collective II)-If this list went to 20, I can promise you that  75 percent of it easily could be the Collective stuff.  As a fan of film,  I am so sick of films that promise me something only to insult me by giving me the same shit disguised as different. This series of shorts are so creative and just passionate, that as a fan it is what we are begging for. God Bless Hoover and his band of merry film makers. This could be classified as almost the anti indie and anti hollywood..it is almost it’s own subgenre…the challenging creative…

 

5.Felony Flats to me is the anti film. This is obscure art at its most pure and obnoxious forms. From the drug induced sedated feels to almost the hyper music and motions that will leave the watcher in so much deep thought that no 2 watchers will think the same thing of any one scene in this film. This is Harmony Korine’s bastard uncle and he brought a even weirder bag of tricks. This is what Hollywood is scared of..this is film rebellion…not making those easy to follow boring shit films, but giving you something that is almost daring you to endure it and come up with your own conclusions as to what it is about…..
