A varied and satisfying lineup with an emphasis on culture clashes.
Of the five live-action shorts nominated this year, three focus on personal fulfillment... The other two shorts are overtly political, and they throb with an urgency the others lack.
Arresting, often impassioned and technically deft proof that a film doesn't have to drone on for an hour and a half to qualify as art.
This is the rare year when the live-action collection is strongest.
In the live-action program, the French offering Ennemis Intérieurs has a timely message.
Offerings range from... love stories to probing political dialogues about immigration and racial identity.
My favorite of the nominees is 'Sing,' a movie for right-now with its pushback against a bullying authority figure and its gently effective defiance.
As with any anthology or program of short films, this year's crop of nominees for the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short is a mixed bag.
The live-action shorts are, on the whole, a stronger bunch
The live action shorts comprise the strongest overall of the shorts categories.
That said, the overall quality of these short efforts is spectacular, particularly with the live-action and documentary slates.
From stories about children's choirs gone wild, unexpected romances and even a gut-churning immigration story that couldn't be more prescient, this year's live-action nominees fit together into a satisfying, smart little package.
