9 - the original short(2005)
As it stands now its a tightly paced beautiful to look at film. Its the best sort of film in that its reality bleeds off the screen and you very easily believe this is a real place and really happening. Acker's animation is extremely masterful. Watch the little motions of 9's body as he moves. There are small touches, gestures, shifts of weight that demolish any notion that we are watching anything other than real being.
A small masterpiece. See this if you can.
