Film: Cincinnati World Cinema: Oscar Shorts

By Jason Gargano · April 6th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Cincinnati World Cinema returns to save us from another thin week at the movie house. The locally based group with typically discerning fare presents its annual “Oscar Shorts & More” screenings April 11, 12 and 14 with a different lineup of programming each night at The Redmoor in Mount Lookout Square.

Of particular interest is the Oscar-winning Logorama, a crafty computer-animated satire of corporate America and big-budget, violence-laden Hollywood blockbusters that features a psychotic Ronald McDonald and a foul-mouthed Frisch’s Big Boy.

And be sure to catch Nick Park’s A Matter of Loaf and Death, the latest amusing adventure featuring Wallace and Gromit, the handcrafted stop-motion duo who can’t help but get themselves into pun-laden, slapstick-rendered trouble.

Of the live-action offerings, Joachim Back’s Oscar-wining black comedy The New Tenant is pungent fun, featuring a first-rate cast (including Vincent D’Onofrio and Kevin Corrigan, both of whom look even more haggard than usual) to tell the story of an apartment and its connection to a murder, an AWOL wife and a missing bag of heroin.

Ticket packages range from $10 to $16. Get showtimes and venue details here.
