Scott of The New York Times says: “At Oscar time, short films are both are both an afterthought and a corrective. … If the shorts are inevitably upstaged by the main show, they also offer a vision of what the Academy Awards should and could be but very rarely are: eclectic, cosmopolitan, scrappy, and surprising.”
