0 Comments · Friday, October 2, 2009
In the Loop presumes that the British government is strong enough, and malevolent enough, to want to push an ill-planned war on its public and the world, from the beginning. This film, with its parade of sometimes venal, repressed characters, features perfect acting by many television veterans unfamiliar to American moviegoers. It opens the Cincy World Cinema fall Global Cinema Series at the Carnegie in Covington at 6:30 p.m. Sunday and plays again at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.  

Art: The Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati

One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last residential commissions was the John E. Christian House in West Lafayette, Ind., completed 50 years ago during the year of Wright’s death. Called Samara, it was a mature example of his Usonian homes, combining art, nature and architecture. The Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati is hosting an exhibition of photographs, artifacts and designs by Wright for Dr. Christian, who worked closely (along with his late wife, Catherine) with Wright on the home. Opening reception will be 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Foundation’s downtown gallery. Through Nov. 17.
