Weighting Dir: Dustin Bowser & Brie Larson Runtime: 4m This Eternal Sunshine-esque  short starring Brie Larson and Satya Bhabha as two lovers breaking up played SXSW earlier this year, where it won a lot of praise for its inventive, slightly askew take on the modern breakup. This surreal, effects heavy short is how breakups feel. There is also a pretty cool breakdown video of how they did the film's final special effect. http://vimeo.com/65627343

What is Neorealism? Dir: Kogonada Runtime: 5m Sight & Sound Magazine In this video essay for the British Film Institue, Kogonada breaks down the form of cinema in the two different cuts of Vitorio di Sica's Terminal Station, which was later recut by David O. Selznick (and renamed Indiscretion of an American Wife) to better highlight its stars, Jennifer Jones and Montgomery Clift. The film is available from Criterion, but I don't see it on their Hulu+ channel unfortunately. http://vimeo.com/68514760
