Where to see lesser-known Oscar nominees
You were first in line at Birdman. You treated your sister to Wild over Christmas. And you?ve been raving about Boyhood since July.
You?ve made a decent dent in the Oscars pool so far.
But you couldn?t have caught them all. Here?s where to see some of the periphery flicks.
Two Days, One Night Marion Cotillard shocked pretty much everyone by edging out Jennifer Aniston for a Best Actress nomination. Judge for yourself at Lincoln Plaza Cinema.
Whiplash While Foxcatcher garnered all the fall buzz, Landmark Sunshine quietly peddled this fast-moving drama about a jazz drummer and his unrelenting instructor. It?s now nominated in five categories (including Best Picture).
Mr. Turner Remember that Dick Poop gaffe? Don?t let it deter you from seeing the gorgeous (and nominated) cinematography of the British seaside.
Citizenfour A documentary that unfolds like a thriller, this front-runner (about NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden) for its category is thankfully still playing at IFC Center.
All the shorts Be sure to catch the annual roundup of nominated shorts, also at IFC, starting January 30.
