Great comedic actors.
SESSION MAN won an Academy Award in 1991 for “Best Live Action Short.”
“… Perfect in scope, complete in its resolve, SESSION MAN is a totally satisfying film experience … Perhaps best-known for thug roles … here (James) Remar portrays a session guitarist named McQueen, a man of veiled, artistic passions … How does a man fully cloak his fire, assured that he can turn on the furnace at the exact moment he needs to bring the heat? And then, once the heat is exposed (making him vulnerable to colder souls) how does he keep his wits in a world of shifting allegiances? … One of my all-time favorite live-action shorts, this film dwarfed the competition in its Academy category in 1991. I saw all the short film nominees in one sitting at an AMPAS screening that year; SESSION MAN was the only one that stirred in my imagination every day for weeks afterward.” (IMDb Review, John-1859)
