Despite the heavy subject matter and longer average run-times, the films in this showcase are the strongest group of the three Oscar short film categories.
A program worth seeing.
This year's Oscar-nominated shorts carry plenty of emotional weight in their compact running times with stories that span life's breadth.
Documentary shorts... provide their share of sad tales, but here, engaging filmmaking can temper the despair...
Each film, some more artful than others, offers a taut packet of upsetting emotions: anger, grief, outrage, and horror, with only tentative glimpses of hope. Why watch them? Because you must not look away.
My pick: Marshall Curry's 'A Night at the Garden,' presenting footage from a 1939 'pro-America' rally in New York City, a chilling reminder of the unpleasant cycles of American history.
When you account for their faults, this is still an illuminating group of topical films that speak to the world we live in at this moment, where issues of racism, health care, immigration and extremist politics remain as prevalent as ever.
All worth watching, whether together or separately.
In the wake of the president's State of the Union address, I thought it opportune to deliver my State of the Oscar Shorts for 2019. And, sad to report, they are anything but strong.
Rarely has the short film category, especially the features and animated films, been dominated so completely by children in extreme distress and mopey narratives about aging. Some of them are extremely good.
Four of the short documentary nominees hail from the U.S., but I'm putting my money on the U.K. entry, "Black Sheep," with "Period. End of Sentence." a close second.
