shorts on the criterion channel

Being able to watch short features that I'd otherwise probably never encounter--and certainly wouldn't bother to get on physical media, at least as standalones--has become my low-key favorite aspect of the CC. Some recent favorites:

A Chairy Tale (McLaren & Jutra): delightful stop-motion animation but the real kicker is the blazing score by Ravi Shankar and Chatur Lal
Solar Walk (Bucsi): very cool and odd animation; RIYL Planète Sauvage and Samurai Jack
The Beast (Nell & Wahrmann): funny satirical South African riff on colonialism and performance
various Jean Painlevé nature docs: trippy and beautiful

I've seen quite a few others, but CC's one flaw is not tracking your viewing activity so I can't remember them right now. What shorts have you been watching?
