A guide for (Seattle-area) Oscar completists

Now that the nominations are out, some of you will be wanting to catch up with a few titles that you’ve missed. Here are some tips for when/where to see some of the lesser-known Oscar-nominated films. Note that among the best picture and best director nominees, “Inception,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Toy Story 3” and “Winter’s Bone” are out on DVD; the rest are still in theaters.
Acting: “Biutiful,” starring best actor nominee Javier Bardem, opens in Seattle Feb. 4, currently scheduled for the Harvard Exit. Jacki Weaver in “Animal Kingdom” and Jeremy Renner in “The Town” can be found on DVD.
Screenplays: Mike Leigh’s “Another Year” opens here this Friday, at the Lincoln Square and Seven Gables.
Animated films: “The Illusionist” also opens here Friday, at the Harvard Exit. “How to Train Your Dragon” is on DVD.
Documentaries: “Restrepo” and “Exit Through the Gift Shop” played Seattle last spring/summer, and are now on DVD. “Inside Job” is still on screen at the Metro. “Gasland” never played Seattle to my knowledge, but is now available on DVD. “Waste Land,” alas, is no longer in theaters and won’t be out on DVD until late March.
Short films: Some of you might have seen Pixar’s charming “Day and Night” in front of “Toy Story 3” in theaters. Otherwise, you can catch most or all of the Oscar-nominated short films in a special package running for a week at the Varsity, starting February 11.
Foreign-language film: Outside of “Biutiful” (Feb. 4 at the Harvard Exit), I can’t help you too much here. “Incendies” and “In a Better World” are both scheduled for a post-Oscars Seattle release later in the spring, and currently I know of no plans to screen “Dogtooth” or “Outside the Law” locally. That may change, due to the nominations; I’ll keep you posted.
