After last year’s Moonrise Kingdom, I wasn’t sure if Wes Anderson could top, or even equal, himself with his next movie. He has. The Grand Budapest Hotelis a shaggy dog story, or in this case, a shaggy hotel story, set in a fictitious European country between the two world wars and into the years of communism.
The annual movie awards season is pretty much over for another year. But once again, you still have a chance to see some of the nominated films that never make it to everyone. The annual gathering of the Oscar Nominated Short Subjects returns once again to Cincinnati World Cinema next weekend. These films are categorized by live action and animated, and in order to give more variety to the arrangement, Cincinnati World Cinema mixes them up and adds some bonus films that didn’t make the cut. The two separate programs are then scheduled twice each, so you have a chance to see them all at once or on different days.
