Cutting Room for April 13

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...

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...
