Shorts

Back when the Oscar nominees were announced I lamented the difficulty of tracking down the various short nominees. It seems the fine people at salon.com agreed, and yesterday they put five of them (3 animated shorts, 2 live action) on their site. There are some real gems amongst them, and when you consider that all five will take well under an hour to watch, it’s well worth a look.

My personal favourites are “Ryan” (further proof that documentaries come in many guises) and “Little Terrorist” (the best political gestures don’t claim to be anything of the sort) but they’re all deserving of more attention.
