One scene, but very effective
Nursery Rhymes plays out in one short which is all but the final shot. This is enough to engage me as I do like films that pull off a good one-shot with movement - much like a martial arts sequence, it feels to me like it is easier to make it if you have lots of edits, even though it can flow better with fewer. We start the one shot with the image of a topless heavy metal fan, awkwardly singing "Old MacDonald" in a field. This lasts a bit before the camera starts to move.

To say much more than that isn't right, as seeing a scene unfold and take a direction is part of the pleasure of the film. Suffice to say that it has impact, and is a good concept and delivery. Technically it is very well done, looks great, and all comes together well. The performances are easy to overlook, but they matter a great deal - and in hindsight Wallace is particularly good. Well worth a look; barely 5 minutes long but stays for much longer.
