OSCAR Nods Miss the Mark

Only rarely do I venture into the realm of film criticism, preferring as I do, reviewing live performances of all kinds, from theatre to symphony, ballet to opera, and assorted concerts as well. Here, I will depart from that pattern just long enough to alert my readers to what I believe will go down in history as a monumental oversight on the part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences in presenting its nominations for this year’s Academy Awards for excellence in film. “A Man Called Otto,” is a movie overflowing with rich humanity, delightful humor, abundant subtleties, and a captivating story that slowly draws you in the way a fine novel would do. The Academy made a huge mistake earlier this year in overlooking this wonderful film. See it when you can.
