Live-action shorts nominated for the 2006 Academy Awards. The most impressive is Martin McDonagh's Six Shooter, with Brendan Gleeson as a grieving widower who finds himself stuck on a commuter train with an obnoxious Irish lad, though close on its heels are two comic shorts: Rob Pearlstein's Our Time Is Up, about a brusque psychologist (Kevin Pollak) who learns he has six weeks to live, and Sean Ellis's Cashback, about an art student who survives his tedious night shift at a supermarket by stopping time so he can sketch the unsuspecting customers. 99 min.
