What do a subway murder, a booger, a teddy bear, butt surgery and a puppet show have in common? Other than the fact that they all describe my week so far, they are featured prominently in the live action short films nominated for an Oscar on Sunday night!

Death of a Cyclist (1955) ***
Directed by Juan Antonio Bardem

(Note: Since InRO uses a four star rating system, I am adjusting the rating to a five star system for my blog.)
