Fourteen Actors Acting

Two friends who don’t know each other posted this link on Facebook this afternoon
within an hour of each other, which tends to suggest it’s gone viral and doesn’t need
my help. Still, here it is: From the New York Times, 14 short films under a minute, featuring
a number of very recognizable actors playing a number of “classic screen types.” Directed
by Solve Sundsbo, with music by former final fantasist Owen Pallet, at first I found
it a bit too self-conscious for my taste. But as I went through them all, I really started
to enjoy these portraits. I wonder what you think.
