Cutting Room for November 21

Ah that old Hollywood motto: “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Now, bring me more cocaine!” For no good reason, the latest attempt to bring Stephen King’s “The Stand” to the big screen has seen the big book split into four movies. Four. As in one more than our beloved family dog, Tripod, has legs. While I’m a fan of the book, this seems a bit excessive. Then again, in Hollywood, excessive...

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

On the one hand, any film subtitled “Part 1” is a naked cash grab. On the other hand, shut up and take my money, Hunger Games. Mockingjay Part 1, like the rest of the franchise, is billed as “Young Adult” fare. Because what hormonal “young adult” doesn’t constantly think about the role of media-savvy propaganda in influencing dissidents to provoke regime change rallied around a hesitant...

Cutting Room for November 14

Dollar, dollar bills, y’all. That’s what Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater is rollin’ in after their fundraiser featuring Alexander Payne and David O. Russell. Feature VI raised an eye-popping $328,000 for the nonprofit theater that has helped single-handedly resurrect film as art in Omaha. That total is a new record, which shouldn’t stop you from donating and supporting because they deserve all...

Oopsie Genius

Birdman

I know two things for sure: (1) Birdman aims to relentlessly drive home one singular point, one thoroughly expressed thesis about life and art. (2) It does not succeed. You would think that would make the work of writers Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Armando Bo and writer/director Alejandro González Iñárritu a total misfire. Not so fast, my fine-feathered friends. Despite its lack of...

The Burden of Actual Christianity

The Overnighters

Most praise for writer/director Jesse Moss’s documentary, The Overnighters, has rightly been focused on its Steinbeckian nature and explosive revelations about struggling workers in North Dakota. That wasn’t the big takeaway for me. The big takeaway for me was how brutal the burden is for those who truly embrace the core conceits of the Christian faith and its insistence upon caring for any and...
