Divorce, Carell Style

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Without a single scene of slapstick puking, accidental drug ingestion or manic violence, Crazy, Stupid, Love, the new movie from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris), feels like some kind of long-lost comedy relic. That's meant in the best possible sense. Although it honestly isn't very crazy or stupid, as is the current comedic trend, it's still pretty funny. And...

In Love & Out

Beginners

When his 75-year-old father, Hal, suddenly announces “I’m gay,” it’s no coming out party for son Oliver who has identity-commitment issues of his own.

The story of Hal (Christopher Plummer) and Oliver (Ewan McGregor) is intertwined in director Mike Mills’ exceptional auto-bio film, Beginners. Ironically, the movie begins with Hal’s death and Oliver being left to cope with demons of his own....

Cutting Room for July 27

 

  • Charlie Kaufman’s only directorial effort, the genius work of art that is Synecdoche, New York, broke my brain in half. Thus, announcement of his forthcoming sophomore effort fills me with equal parts glee and a desire to purchase of copious amounts of aspirin. It comes with the inauspicious title Frank or Francis and the simplistic plotline, “a volatile back and forth between a film...

Movieha - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast!

Welcome once more to Movieha, the podcast voted most likely to change your life (that vote had an accuracy of 0-100%). This week sees another minor squabble between myself and Matt Lockwood, as well as a truly horrid Netflix pick, some particularly newsy news, and more crowd-pleasing haikus (because what pleases people like haikus? Answer: Nothing.) Listen up and meet me on the other side for...

Poetry Versus

In-Your-Face Race Film for the New Millennium

Make no mistake about it, filmmaker Omowale Akintunde intends for his 2010 racially-charged Omaha-made feature, Wigger, to provoke a strong response.

After premiering here last year, and in limited theatrical release around the country, the dynamic looking and sounding film returns for a 7 p.m., July 28 red carpet screening at the Twin Creek Cinema. It's back just in time for Native Omaha...
