Mothlight (1963)

Mothlight is #983 on TSPDT and is so far the shortest movie on the list. It clocks in at a whopping 3 minutes and 25 seconds long. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I usually do include a picture for each movie, but in this case since it’s such a short movie I’m going to include 3 minutes and 25 seconds worth of pictures which amounts to a whole lot of words.

So there you go, that’s the movie. At first I thought it was some troll click bait then I realized that it actually was the movie. I’m bewildered that this can make it onto the list and am starting to question the legitimacy of it all. This is obviously extremely experimental. Apparently the director glued dead insect parts directly onto the filmstrip and ran that through the projector. So technically nothing was actually shot for the movie, it was just put together by hand. Interesting idea? Maybe. Interesting movie? No! I struggle to even call this a movie and I don’t want to spend any more of my brain power analyzing this.

Would I recommend this? Absolutely not. Is it kind of too late for that since I linked the video already? Yes. Am I done asking and answering my own questions? Yeah…

Verdict: N/A Not a movie!
