*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Opus III" is the 3rd entry to Walter Ruttmann's Opus short film franchise and just like 2 and 4 it runs for roughly 3 minutes and features all kinds of shapes moving wildly from left to right, top to bottom and just all over the place. There is nothing really new compared to the other installments, but it is a decent little animation film. Also, at this runtime it does not really drag. Still, it is still very crude, but it is the early 1920s, so this should be no surprise. Nonetheless, it is far inferior to what was done in the United States at this point, especially in terms of animation. All in all, I guess it#s unlikely you will see this before you watch parts 1 and 2, so decide for yourself afterward. I personally did not feel this was a particularly enjoyable watch. Not recommended.
