Cutting Room for September 7

  • Unlike Jim Croce, I have not yet fallen in love with a “Roller Derby Queen,” but Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) is trying to help me swoon for a bad-ass beauty by screening the documentary Derby Baby: A Story of Love, Addiction and Rink Rash on Tuesday Sept 18 at 7 pm. Omaha Rollergirls will be available for autographs before and after the film. Just remember to be respectful because...

Celeste and Jesse Forever

The degree to which you will enjoy Celeste and Jesse Forever solely depends on how ensorcelled you are by the luminous Rashida Jones. If you love her, this movie is a moderately effective slice-of-life rom-com-dram. If you think she’s just okay (or worse), you’re left to find enjoyment with Andy Samberg giving a fake handjob to a tube of lip Vaseline. 

Jones, who co-wrote with Will McCormack,...

Comedians Sleep Standing Up

Sleepwalk With Me

A note for the admittedly small subset of folks who swoon at the storytelling magic of “This American Life” and tingle at the mere mention of Ira Glass’s name: Sleepwalk with Me is charming public radio entertainment channeled into cinemas. Watch out Hollywood blockbusters, if there’s one thing mainstream movie audiences have demanded, it’s more material adapted from NPR.

Cutting Room for August 31

  • People looking for a chance to root against Michael Keaton since Mr. Mom now have their chance: he’s going to be the new bad guy in the Robocop remake. This casting definitely adds further juice to this potential beetle, as early script reviews have been…let’s go with “unkind.” Still, with a great group of actors, including Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley...

Rednecks and White Lightning

Lawless

Scuff him, scrape him, buff him up; nobody is going to buy Shia LaBeouf as a country boy. He has a face built for Instagram and his posture is that of a narcissist demanding bottle service at a trendy club. Even though he plays the least burly of the Bondurant boys, a real life trio of brothers who ran moonshine during prohibition, nobody is buying what he is desperately giving away. Thus, it’s...
