This weekend, Fort Worth gets a way early look at eight movies we’ll be talking about through Oscar season



Beginning Thursday, moviegoers in Fort Worth will get an early look at some films that will soon be vying for Oscars. This week, we preview Modern Cinema, which runs through Sunday at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Joining us is Christopher Kelly, the former Fort Worth Star-Telegram movie critic who curated the lineup.

This year’s event is particularly flush with films made by top-notch international directors. Asghar Farhadi (“A Separation,” “The Salesman”), Pawel Pawlikowski (“Ida”) and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (“The Lives of Others”) have each helmed winners of the best foreign language film Oscar.
