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...

Movieha - A very special episode…

As promised (or threatened), our nerd-tastic relationship with The Two-Headed Nerd podcast has reached new heights, as we present to you our round-table discussion on X-Men: First Class. We've done our best to delete the cursing, but I feel that this rambunctious verbal free-for-all appropriately captures our geeky passion and will help further expose the depths of our love of movie discussion....

  • Unless your name rhymes with Schmonald Schlump, you probably don’t scoff at things that are free. This goes doubly for those of you who are parents, as I’m told owning kiddies is expensive. Owning is the correct term to use, right? At any rate, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) has kicked off their Free Family Flicks series, which is pretty much what it sounds like. The theater will show...

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...
