A new streaming platform, Le CiNéMa Club, may just establish itself as your new favourite website. Free to use, the site offers viewers a weekly curated short film, so far ranging from a minute to an hour long. From a director you've likely never heard of and often part of a national cinema you may not have much previous experience with, the shorts vary wildly in tone and style but all have two things in common - they're all excellent, and they're all criminally under seen.

For seven days, the website gives you the opportunity to view a curated short film, and experience the variety of wonders that the less appreciated cousin of the feature-length movie can offer. These concise, condensed and infinitely varying pieces of cinema pose a challenge to the filmmaker, one that demands they relay their entire message and vision in a limited period of time, a challenge that is in some cases much harder than the indulgence allowed over the space of two plus hours.

Short films require that their directors, writers and crew trim the fat. In good short films there is no excess, and the images you see and sounds you hear must all immediately relay their subtext and contribute to the narrative or face being relegated to the editing room floor in favour of something more expressive or important.

This idea rings especially true in the context of this week's selection, Robert Eggers' 2013 film Brothers, a sparse meditation on the complex moralities of blood relations set against a brooding rural landscape. A primer for the director's celebrated 2015 period horror The Witch, Brothers demonstrates the eye for intricately surreal detail that would go on to feature prominently in his work since.

Soaked in sweat and mud, and filmed through a haze of smoke and morning fog, Brothers alternates multiple times between a delicate examination of a young boy's relationship with his volatile sibling, and a brutal and bloody drama-cum-tragedy all in the space of ten minutes.

Largely silent and more focused on atmosphere than cause and effect narrative progression, Eggers' film takes a path less walked in the history of onscreen siblings, choosing to cultivate a darker and more intentionally abrasive relationship, one that demonstrates little reason behind its corrosive nature, but still produces haunting results.

Each week we will provide a review for the film being screened over at Le CiNéMa Club, in the hope that you will head on over and see what new experience is to be had. You've got the option to replay past screenings, and with a growing catalogue that includes Andrea Arnold's Wasp (2003), Gus Van Sant's The Discipline of D.E (1979) and Yorgos Lanthimos' Necktie (2013), the platform is delivering the underappreciated gems of the medium straight to your laptop, and simultaneously spreading this dimension of the artform to corners of the earth it may not have reached otherwise.

Never again must you endlessly trawl through Netflix, or pose the impossible question of "what shall we put on?" to a bemused sofa audience, because the good folks over at Le CiNéMa Club have got you covered.
