Time Twisted Tales & “Pear Cider” Highlight Oscar Nominated Shorts (Animation)

 

What the best short films lack in running time, they make up for in emotional impact and – especially in the animation category – stunning artistry.

Flipping the Script on: Tarsem’s ‘The Fall’

Welcome to “Flipping the Script,” a monthly column where I will reconsider recent films that have been panned, frowned upon, or simply under appreciated. I believe that movies should speak to us on a deep, personal level, and this column will consist of films that have done that for me despite widespread derision or apathy.
