Cutting Room for April 13

  • You can keep the absanity of Ryan Reynolds or the chiseled chin of Clooney, my man crush is and will remain Ira Glass, the master of ceremonies for NPR’s “This American Life.” Don’t laugh!

Cutting Room for April 11

  • I’m a sucker for romantic comedies. Oh, I could try to shield my masculinity with a denial, but the reality is that I have, on more than one occasion, failed to turn the channel when Win a Date with Tad Hamilton was one. So it’s with joy that I announce Omaha will soon have its own horse in that genre race. On Thursday, April 19 at 7 pm, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) will host a...

Cinema Very T&A

Crazy Horse

Dress it up with classy filmmaking terms all you want, but facts are facts: Crazy Horse is an idling, simplistic documentary peppered with lady butts. Acclaimed director Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies) unleashes his cinéma vérité prowess on a subject unbecoming, lazily meandering through what appears to be a low-rent, mildly titillating Cirque du Soliel club in France. The intersection of...

  • The Mary Riepma Ross Theater (theross.org) in Lincoln has a thirst for blood so big a single screen can’t contain it. On Thursday, April 5 at 7 pm, Unfiltered Entertainment, which is a Lincoln-based production company, will hold the premiere of their feature-length horror film Blood Rites on not one but two screens, enough to hopefully accommodate the hordes of horror buffs looking to catch...

Chico and Rita

In America, the term “adult animation” still conjures up images of inappropriate drawings, an alarming genre enjoyed by a thankfully small subgroup of the human race. But for the rest of the world, cartoons are more than just a way to sell Happy Meal tie-ins. As France showed with Persepolis and Israel demonstrated with Waltz With Bashir, the limitless potential of animation dismantles budget...
