We can't make City Paper without you
Last week the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 90th Academy Awards. The nominees ranged from traditional Oscars bait to a human-monster love story. City Paper reviews many new releases that play in the D.C. area, and this week arts editor Matt Cohen sat down with City Paper film critic Alan Zilberman to sort through the nominees. The pair makes predictions, picks apart best picture favorite Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and explains why Get Out is the film of 2017. They also summarize all of the potential best picture winners and talk about what movies like The Post get right and wrong about D.C.
