    Oscar '09: "In Bruges"'s Martin McDonagh

    Talk to Martin McDonagh and the phrase he keeps returning to is "dark and dangerous." Certainly those words -- along with hilarious, twisted, fresh -- capture the "In-Yer-Face Theatre" of this Anglo-Irish writer.

    Shorts Monthly: First Timers Dominate this Year's Oscar Short Film Derby

    In the live action, animation and documentary short film categories of the 81st Annual Academy Awards, only one nominated director has a track record.
