The occasion was opening night of a touring 35mm program of Brothers Quay films, which was curated by Nolan and will be at Film Forum through Tuesday. It features three of the Quays’ best-known shorts — 2000’s Karlheinz Stockhausen–scored reverie of madness In Absentia, the playfully degenerate 1990 film Comb, and the noirish nightmare Street of Crocodiles (1986), possibly their masterpiece.Nolan’s film, simply titled Quay, makes no attempts to replicate the animators’ much-imitated style.

These shorts have all been screened for members of the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who will soon vote on the ultimate short list that will be in contention for an Oscar nomination. Last year ten films made the list. Take a look over the next eight pages and see which ones stand out to you.
