Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man is the best short film I've ever seen. It's simply outstanding storytelling. Brandon McCormick took L. Frank Baum's backstory for the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz and told it in twenty-three minutes of film. The Tin Man was once a young man of flesh and blood, in love with a young maiden, until he lost both his humanity and his love.
