This is one of my favorites, and the 2009 Oscar winner for Best Live Action Short. It has the perfect combination of a (very) black comedy, a story that just keeps on twisting and a talented group of actors (including Vincent D'Onofrio, Kevin Corrigan, and the late David Rakoff). It’s a true New York film. Cinnamon buns, anyone?
