Strangers with Candy

Beautiful Darling

Several recent documentaries have mined a vein of nostalgia for New York City’s East Village art scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s. For example, with its obligatory still photos of the artist chillin’ with a number of as-yet-undiscovered artists (Madonna being one of them), The Radiant Child shed light on Jean Michel Basquiat’s life and career. Iconic NYC fashion photographer Bill Cunningham...

Turn on Your Heart Light

Super 8

To quote beloved Romantic thinker William Wordsworth, the origin of poetry is “emotion recollected in tranquility.” To quote online movie critic Devin Faraci, “Nostalgia is the sad condition of disliking yourself and your life right now.” If you agree with the latter, have fun saddling genuine, joy-filled entertainment with insipid, cynical labels like “nostalgia porn.” If you agree...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 10)

X-Men: First Class

Welcome to the second of two podcastical experiences we have birthed through our mouth wombs this week! We had a crossover with Two-Headed Nerd this week to discuss X-Men: First Class...which was a rambunctious display of verbal tomfoolery in which everyone got really animated and loud. It's kind of like hanging out with the four of us at any given time. What you see below this text is our...

Star Empowerment

Potiche

Film icon Catherine Deneuve's first major role was as an umbrella shop sales girl in the 1964 Jacques Demy film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Now, nearly a half-century later (with a enormously successful career in between), she can be found playing the unappreciated wife of an umbrella factory owner in Potiche, the latest picture from François Ozon. Potiche is French slang for “trophy wife,” and...

Hair of the Dawgs

The Hangover Part II

A working theory: There is no script for The Hangover Part II. There is only a script for the first Hangover with white out on some of the verbs and nouns. After their first unabashed gross-out out-grossed all other comedies ever made, writer/director Todd Phillips and writers Craig Mazin and Scot Armstrong dropped a deuce on such pedestrian concepts as “originality” and “character...

The Oregon Fail

Meek's Cutoff

The epitome of form as message, the silent and sparse first seven minutes of director Kelly Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoff quietly contrasts the brutality of life on the Oregon Trail in 1845 with lyric and beautiful glimpses of unspoiled American landscapes. The film’s fitting first spoken words, a Christian dinner prayer recited by a child, gracefully remind viewers of the Puritanical fire that...
