"As little as possible" as Jake Gittes says. So I've been getting into The Sopranos, it's taking up a lot of time and I'm looking for shorter movies to squeeze in so that I can get right back to Big Jimmy G. Some of my favs under 80 -
Freaks (1932) - 62m The Circus (1928) - 72m The Plumber (1979) - 77m Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - 75m The City of the Dead (1960) - 76m Sabotage (1936) - 77m Zelig (1983) - 79m
especially looking for bitesize noirs like Detour (1945, 68m) and Devil Thumbs a Ride (1947, 62m) - or TV Movies, like The Firm (1989, 70m) and The Collection (1976, 64m).

Pickup on South Street is exactly 80 but great for that if you haven't seen it.
Guessing you may have seen Man With a Movie Camera, essential 68 minutes. And The Last Laugh at 77 min.
The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926, 80 min), A Town Called Panic (2009, 75 min), It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012, 62 min) are my animation recs. And I guess Nightmare Before Christmas and a dozen or so Disney classics if those have somehow passed you by.
Culloden (1964, 69m) The Fireman's Ball (1967, 73m) Daisies (1966, 74m) Louie Bluie (1985, 75m) Primer (2004, 77m) The Lavender Hill Mob (1951, 78m) The King of Kong (2007, 79m) The Color of Pomegranates (1969, 79m) My Winnipeg (2007, 80m)
As for TV movies, I suppose if you are a Spielberg completist like me there's Something Evil at 73m Not a fav but you know.

The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello is the only movie ever made that takes less time to watch than to read its title. It is also really good, a sort of steampunk horror movie. Got an Oscar nod for best animated short film.
Twin Peaks is fine and all, but it would be better if Wes Anderson was behind it. Heck, it wouldn't even be all that different for the first couple of seasons.
