Oscar Nominated Shorts At The Cable Car
Of the animated shorts the cleverest, Timothy Reckart’s “Head Over Heels,” is a diabolical exercise in stop-motion animation in which an estranged, long-married couple occupy the same house in an upside-down world. One lives on the ceiling, the other on the floor, and they keep colliding.
In John Kahrs’s wistful black-and-white “Paperman,” set in mid-20th-century Manhattan, a man in an office tries to catch the attention of a woman he fancies by tossing paper gliders out a window toward her.
