Cutting Room for April 6

  • While theologians and atheists continue to spar over the existence of an eternal creator, The Reader can officially confirm that the devil is 100 percent real. The proof?

The school will recognize it as “Communication Week,” and one of the cool happenings during this celebration of all things communicatively connected will take place at the Aksarben Cinema. On Tuesday, April 26 at 5:30 p.m., the theater will screen DuSable to Obama:...


Cutting Room for March 23

  • I think I accidentally mentally combined the two events that Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) have planned for April 1 to June 16.

On March 15, a collaboration with the Nebraska Chapter of the Nature Conservancy...

Kingsman: The Secret Service

A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

GRADE
B

On DVD: Birdman

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension. 

GRADE

On DVD: The Theory of Everything

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

Jupiter Ascending

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.

This Israeli comedy about military service is a mixed bag.
