Harris Savides

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? This is a two-for-one deal. In 2007, Martin Scorsese – one of the biggest film geeks out there – took three pages of an Alfred Hitchcock movie and decided to “preserve” it by filming it in Hitch’s style. Thankfully those pages weren’t from a scene where the hero brushes his teeth or buys new shoes or something. The result is played after Scorsese talks to an interviewer about his intentions and what they mean. Thus, it’s half documentary, half quick fiction. It’s also sadly appropriate to post today because it was shot by the incredible Harris Savides, the DP behind movies like Elephant, Milk and Zodiac. Word is going around that he’s died. There’s little information on it and no firm news (so if it turns out mercifully to be untrue, it’ll be one of the stranger cultural moments of the year). Regardless, it’s still a thrill to watch the man’s work. Update: Unfortunately, the news of Savides’ death is accurate. His talent was immense, and he’ll of course be missed. What will it cost you? Only 9 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.
