  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lifeboat is almost indistinguishable from 4.1 Miles, a nominee on the same topic from several years back, while Period comes across more like a commercial for the Pad Project than a real attempt at a stand-alone film.
