Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
I just saw this at the London Film Festival, and at the risk of sounding over the top, it's actually excellent - and a perfect example of how a really well-written and well-acted short film can have as much impact and substance as a full-length feature.
Though not for the faint-hearted - without giving away the plot and the harrowing twist at the end, it's one of the grimmest films I've seen in ages!
(I hope it would come out on DVD, but being a short film I suppose it won't be possible to get hold of it. Maybe it'll appear on some late-night TV channel at some point, in which case well worth looking out for.)
