While everyone else is busy catching up with the movies that won the Oscars last weekend, why not engage in a little counter-programming and catch up with the movies that lost? You know, in other words, the movies that are actually good. (I'm not bitter.)

Opening at the Broadway is Waltz With Bashir, the gripping mix of animation and documentary that fell short in the Foregin Language category. And there's still The Wrestler, which is much more than Mickey Rourke's career-resurrecting performance -- and a much more emotionally potent underdog story than a certain bit of Mumbai silliness we could mention. (I'm still not bitter.)
