Film preview: "The Decalogue"

Film preview: "The Decalogue"

The Little and Dryden celebrate Art House Theater Day

It used to be that movie-lovers interested in seeing the latest independent and foreign film titles in a theater had to live in New York or Los Angeles.

Three upcoming events stretch animation's possibilities

Despite practically a hundred years of evidence to the contrary, animation is still burdened with a reputation for being "kids' stuff," simple cartoons meant to keep children occupied and out of their parents' hair for a couple hours. But anyone who has bothered to broaden their definition beyond the latest mainstream release from Disney or Dreamworks knows animation has infinitely more to offer (although as one documentary suggests, even those films can have hidden depths).
