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...

Cutting Room for April 4

  • 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...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Having survived the madness surrounding The Hunger Games, we've got a podcast you...KATNISS....get it? Like it sounds like "can't miss!" Kind of? Not really? Okay then. This week we talk about the real Bully, the MPAA.

Jazz Gives the Blues

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...

One Plus One Equals One

Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye

What happens when the certifiably bizarre co-founder of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV marries a former dominatrix and performance artist?

Well, in their ideal scenario, the union would create a sort of pandrogynous third being; a joint identity that, as they readily admit, is as much an art project as a function of their undying love for one another. This is the basic scenario, although...

Cutting Room for March 28

  • In a sad societal statement, this week I heard more of a public outcry about what Michael Bay said about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action movie than about the Trayvon Martin case. My Twitter feed and Facebook blew up with the kind of outrage that should follow a racially motivated murder and not, say, the revelation that the TMNT origin is being rewritten so that they are...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hey, hey, hey. We're back up in your ears with a new episode jam packed to the gills with a discussion of 21 Jump Street (which was surprisingly good!), The Sound of My Voice trailer (which is super awesome!), news about the Ninja Turtles (which is stunningly lame!) and Jack Ryan (which is stunningly neutral!), Poolboy (which is mind-numbingly enjoyable to one of us!), and Hakus (which are...
