This global sampling indicates a middling crop this year, representing the promise of what these filmmakers might do in the future over excellence in the present.
Two great reasons to see The Oscar-Nominated Short Films 2014: Live Action - one dark and funny and wickedly existential, the other a nail-biter of a domestic drama, filled with dread.
Only one Academy Award nominee in the live-action short film category truly merits the win.
The fact that dedicated committees of conscientious human beings who know a lot about how movies are made weeded through hundreds and hundreds of submissions and picked their favorites ... is something to be grateful for.
There's plenty of talent to behold.
A woeful mixed bag.
Three of them are worth writing home about.
Just Before Losing Everything [is] a 30-minute domestic thriller as gripping as any of the Best Picture nominees.
I know there are tons of interesting and innovative short films being made out there - I just wish I could see more of them in the Academy Final Five every year.
Also, weird to say it, but several of them are just too damn long.
There isn't a bad film in this bunch ...
[The Oscars] tend to favor simple stories - too simple, bordering on (and often actually) banal.
