Good short films with only 1 actor

Can someone give me some links to some good short films that only have one actor in it. I wanna see some of these types of movies to get some inspiration and see how they manage to keep it interesting.

This one doesn't have any other actors until the very end (they're unimportant to the rest of the film, anyway).

I was waiting for Rod Serling to pop out. Very TZ. Looks simple, but some elaborate shots that don't call attention to themselves. Road closures. They did it right.

I like this one. I watched it to the end -- rare for me. Congrats to the filmmakers of this!

Several Twilight Zone episodes, most notably "The Invaders" with Agnes Moorehead. Also notable for having nearly no dialog.

I think most things are not as interesting when it only has one person in the film.

A full length film that is good that has mainly one character for most of the film
