I’ve been my usual sloppy and lazy self in attempting to catch the the Oscar-nominated live action and animated shorts. So far I’ve seen exactly one animated entry — Josh Raskin‘s I Met the Walrus. It reminds me a bit of portions of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, which may be deliberate because it’s based on an actual tape-recorded chat with John Lennon during his 1969 bed-in for peace in a Toronto hotel. It played at Sundance and the Santa Barbara Film Festivals, and, for what it’s worth, has HE’s seal of approval to point to.
