"Oh, ha! Sarcasm: The last refuge of sons of bitches!"

"Ryan"

You really should check out this animated short called "Ryan". It's from the National Film Board of Canada (Hurrah! Socialist movies!) and is nominated for an Oscar this year. It is also powerfully beautiful and deeply sad.

It seems to me that good short movies are able to pack as much emotion and meaning as feature length films, perhaps more. Did you ever make juice from a can and taste the concentrate before you mixed in all the water? It is like that.

i was glad to have watched this before the Oscars last night. This short was really very good. I liked how the emotional "scars" of life were made physical. Great to see it win!

Well, obviously I liked it too.

I was looking over the winners and nominees (above post), and I realized that I have only seen 6 of the nominees and 3 of the winners, "Ryan" included. Maybe I should get out more.
