THE 2007 ACADEMY AWARD-NOMINATED SHORT FILMS
Various Directors. Opens on Friday nationwide.


The New York Times has a great rundown of the 10 films (five animated and five live-action) nominated in the Oscar category of best short film, which can be seen together.

"It would be a mistake to assume that the 10 movies nominated this year for best live-action and animated short film in the Oscar sweepstakes are the kind of cinematic amuse-bouches often shown before the main feature at film festivals. Most are not trifles, and some range from 30 to 40 minutes long.

"Among the animated films nothing resembles a traditional Disney cartoon. Sophisticated illustration, puppetry, stop-motion animation and digital wizardry are the order of the day. And what does it mean for American cinema that among the nominated shorts, not one was made in Hollywood or even in the United States?"

Review by Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
