30 hand picked films. A new one every day
An astronomer is alternately bedeviled and enchanted by various aspects of the moon in a quite literal way.
(melies histoire 3) chaplin, buster, Harold Lloyd, Tati, Bunuel all the way through the new wave, postmodernism, etc, it all seeds in these shorts...watch them, theyre only one to a few minutes long...
Is funny indeed.
If you're going to see only one 1890s film from the first grandmaster of cinema, make it this one. It is an amazing leap forwards.

Now, that's what I call Méliès! This film has it all.
I love Mélies's obsession with big faces and space. I just love all they films, are like young tales but much higher intense.
